The Narcissist – March 23, 2016

written from somewhere inside
a fantasy
or mystery
but who holds the pen

and those words echoing
across a sea of static
and yet so well-known
who speaks them

in a murky wilderness
without rhyme or reason
unbeknownst to anyone
he walked by
snapping a photograph

he caught … the narcissist
reflecting upon his soul
preening in dark waters …
mysterious are the words written
this  bright spring morning.

  1. There is a wonderful flow to this piece – and the ideas floating around, the observer (penning these thoughts as witness) – watching a scene unfold and play out – with a curiosity that questions the reasons behind the acts of creation, it so delicious. It’s like you have written a piece as a third-party witness who has stepped into this surreal frame – delightful. And oh, how delightful a conclusion or summation:
    he caught … the narcissist
    reflecting upon his soul
    preening in dark waters …

    Love the metaphor, imagery and allegory.
