Have I made the right decision
to quit my former job?
When articles, tasks, welcomed me like a mob.
Have I made the right choice
to become a writer?
When my brain cells sometimes falter?
Have I made the right turn
to pursue my dreams?
When the reality is not always what it seems.
Seeing myself against
the black desktop screen
With eyes and brain all tensed
but a heart full of preen.
Yes, I guess,
the answer is seen.

Day 2: Reflections by @mkucsera
On water, in puddles, in glass, in mirrors – reflections can clarify, blur reality, or fracture it altogether. They can serve up surreal images or a perspective that’s unexpected. Whether it’s street light-reflected raindrops or the sky distorted in a half-melted patch of ice, reflections are nature’s funhouse mirrors.
Reflections are not limited to non-living objects. Our bodies reflect our internal health and our clothes reflect our lifestyle. We also reflect internally upon our world, our physical state, or on ideas bouncing around inside our skulls.
Clear or distorted, in your poem today tell us something about the reflections you see — in the world or in yourself.
Hey, Mel! Thank you so much for a very thought provoking prompt, 🙂
You made me reflect about the biggest decision that I made this year, and you made me realize that I, indeed, made the right decision.
