*inspired by My record player haha

My Looking Glass

Looking at this clearing in the woods,

I see a girl with a ponytail,

leaning against a tree

with a record player

sitting on the grass next to her.

 

Looking at this lonely park bench

I see an old man,

sitting there on this fall day

with a transistor radio in his hand

with no cares in the world.

 

Looking at that corner booth In the dinner,

I see two teenagers.

The boy, carving their initials in a heart

onto the table with a small pocket knife.

Advertising their love.

 

Looking into this quiet recording studio,

I see a young man,

with a book on his lap

and a guitar leaning against his leg

trying to tune everything out.

 

Through this looking glass,

I can see everything important,

everything I can't let people forget.

These simple things are what matter,

they're our lives...♥

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha Introspective to say the least, enticing one to explore within the inner workings of the mind as it views those around oneself and everyday activities. Even a simple activity may hold within a lesson that can resonate far beyond one’s perceptions. Well written.

Right. Sometimes the present is really the past all over again. Thank you

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
