SHADOWS IN GLASS

Not quite world renowned, yet still slightly famous His artistry revered among an extended circle of faithfuls All clamoring for entrance to behold the coveted treasures The beauty of his creations surpassed only by his vision Sometimes a window, sometimes a mirror Making one question their own perceptions Forcing them to look within rather thanContinue reading “SHADOWS IN GLASS”

PAST THE POINT

Past the point Of no return She frantically searched The looking glass Seeing visions and images That weren’t really there A multitude of words Being backwards truths Wondering always If anyone knew Or even cared How she really felt She dropped the looking glass Shattering to the ground Catching sight of Alice The chase wasContinue reading “PAST THE POINT”
