A Mirror Story



Brooks, books, trees and paintings on the wall—
Each reflects a story, each reveals soul.
Even these tiny violets I hold
show the face of God.

Break a mirror and be struck
With sevenfold bad luck.


All creation,
like a book or a picture,
is a mirror to us.
Alain de Lille

Wonder-filled reflection.

"Even these tiny violets I hold show the face of God." ... lovely: violets symbolizing, in part (I believe): Faith.

Yes...nature does mirror the reflection of God.
