Carpe Diem Shadow #6 – Mirror – August 17, 2014

The prompt on Carpe Diem Haiku Shadow is mirror as I guess you understood from the title of this post 😉  Strangely enough over the past few days, the subject has come to mind more than once and recently I wrote a poem entitled Vanity

Here is Chèvrefeuille’s haiku to help us along:

as I look in the mirror
my hair turned grey and wrinkles under my eyes –
in my heart I am young

© Chèvrefeuille


a secret glance
admiring reflections
in the mirror

withered image
of the youth that once was proud
peeks through the mirror

the safety mirror
shows where I’d just been
a minute ago

road mirrorthe man shaves
looking at the image of himself
now old and wrinkled

she twirls happily
looking at her wedding dress
her delight mirrored

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
