the sunlight shimmers
on the surface of the mirage
a dazzling mirror of life
reflecting all you've hidden
- no oasis here
in her eyes reflected
yet to be mapped
by a human reconnaissance
Here are the words and my poem for the thirty-fifth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.
This poem wrote itself. It happens sometimes - the words come and I write them down, a conduit for inspiration and ideas. I'm not sure what it means, I leave that up to you to decipher and decide. This one was a gift and I for one am not questioning my muse or counting horse's teeth. I advise you to do the same should you ever find yourself in my position.
If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub.
If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).
