Today's reflective poem: "Mirror, Mirror" by Lynn White.

Mirror, Mirror

by Lynn White

Mirror, mirror, tell me
who do you see.
Is she white,
snow white,
whiter than white,
fairer than fair.
White as virgin snow
unbroken by footprints,
unblemished,
unsullied.
Or is her snowy white
greying
as time passes,
picking up some of the dirt
in passing.
Maybe darker still in places
as its whiteness decays 
and melts
away.
Tell me, mirror,
who do you see?
