Magpie Tales


The Time We Are Apart

It’s been awhile

Since I came to call

Held your image before me

Looked into the mirror

To see myself reflected


What happens to thoes moments

When we are apart

Do they ride an escalator to the next floor

Is time suspened into

Long naps

Shaded in the afternoon sun


Are they waiting for the reunion

I hold your image before me

Look into the mirror and see myself

  1. I have always enjoyed ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ My grandson is just discovering his reflection and I wonder what he is thinking when he sees that other little person holding the same toy he has in his hand. A lovely tale of self discovery every time…well sometimes. Sometimes the reflection is a reminder of those we look like and other mornings when pillow wrinkles and hair is all askew I think I would rather look beyond the reflected image 🙂

    1. My life as been so busy and I’m sure it is true for others.

      Over the years, I find when I actually ‘look’ and it is a surprise; who looks back at me, what have I become, who am I now? Have I become a stranger, since last I took a look?

      Suddenly, I am aware years have passed. Where have the years gone? Where am I now?

      Perhaps it is the Land of Alice? Thanks for your comments! Annell Livingston HC 74 Box 21860 El Prado, NM 87529
