Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear…


objects in the mirror are closer than they appear

it’s a warning

that things may not yet be
completely behind you.

it might appear
to you and to all who use convex mirrors

and a bit of smoke

that you are past all that.

beyond it.

moved on.

but it is always still
closer than it appears

it’s not that looking back is courageous
so much as not looking back is naive.
often reflecting back is
a prerequisite
to moving on.

    This really hit home for me tonight. Thank you brotha Ric :) I’m glad to see you back. Have missed your gift of poetry. Pray you are well and hope to connect with you again soon.

    Blessings!
