« What do you see, Mirror? »

« I am YourSelf »

That is what the mirror mercilessly responds to the one who asks.

The day will come when the image will blur in proportion as the water will darken and will tarnish the mirror. At what point reflection it will become an image painful to watch? At what point it will become an image to love?

« But I’m not what I was seeing in the mirror. All accuse me. »

and the mirror to respond:

« I am Yourself in a special time the future or the past »

The day will come when our eyes accept what they catch and will restore to appearances the mystery of this picture become clear and limpid with time. Richer and more asserted because « It need a much troubled soul for to be mistaken really on the mirages of the river »

The day will come when we will recognize the reflection of the beauty that we have become and that the water of the mirror had not refleted of the years at earlier.

So, that day, we will be happy and we will smile.

  1. Awesome and congrats for this impressive translation!
    The beauty of the poet is in his poesy
    The mirror reflects only his body
    The poesy reflects the soul of the poet
    The image gets tainted and impure with the passage of time
    The eternal soul is untainted and pure, my dear friend and poet
    Keep writing

  2. Your words reminded me of Oscar Wilde´s « The Portrait of Dorian Gray »…
    BUT with good consequences. A total different twist if compared to the most common (negative) version involving mirrors… Nicely penned. Sending best wishes 😀

    • … yes, it is sometimes difficult to see the person who is in a photo … Fixed, lifeless … In a frame placed on a piece of furniture…
      But the mirror, in reality, returns the image of an emergency … This human that we are inside of ourselves … Sometimes stuck but so rich of a knowledge.
      This representation must leave the mirror. For us … for everyone we love … for the world around us and of which we are part whatever it may be.
      The image in the mirror is the person we should be offering to the world every day. Our differences are our beauties…. An ephemeral reflection that we should love without a doubt
      Thanks for reading Hélène 🙂
      (sorry for my english 🙂 ..;)
