Haiku Heights September Challenge #2 – ‘Mirror’

Day two of the September Challenge over at ‘Haiku Heights’ – today’s theme/prompt is ‘Mirror’

a fleeting image
before the mirror shattered
demon of bad luck

————–

mirrors always lie
that isn’t me staring back
I wonder who it is

————-

lonely swan glides by
mirror image not in sight
soul mate lost forever

  1. You have put up a nice and diverse compilation on the topic – it’s so interesting to look at different aspects of the same word.
    I love the lyricism (is there such a word?!) of the last one; I enjoy the message of the second one (I have been getting that feeling for several years now… What is it with mirrors these days? ;-)); and I like the supersticious note in the first one. (Happy not to have shattered a mirror, ever.)

    Greetings, M.

    1. Thanks for your comments Leo.
      I/ve got to that age where I try to avoid mirrors – they have such a horrible habit of showing you as you are not what you think you are!
