Mirror


A thin flat pane
Of unblemished glass
And a reflecting plane
Of sputtered aluminum…
Mirror …amazing mirror
A symbol of fashion
Image of civilization
Right turned left
Again reflect
A self-portrait.

Mirror on the Hubble
It's Newton's kind
Exploring the universe
For all mankind.

Laser and mirror
Worked together
And gave this generation
An all new communication.

Mirror for makeup
The fair one behold,
Man's close shave
Handsome and bold.

Eye of the immersed
The sub's periscope
Eye pleasing patterns
Of the kaleidoscope.

Side view mirror
Rear view mirror
Drive without either
Sure a disaster.

Mirror to life's
Reflected shine
Life without mirror
It's hard to imagine.

    Here is a poem that reflects more than a small mirror. Referring to the various ways a mirror is often used you have thrown light at the conceptual logic of the right use of devices transcending that of mirror. Though the theme looks to be simple and quite easy to interpret, you have done good job by writing this poem and I give a clean 10 for this poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
