REFLECTIONS

Note: Living Mirror


I am a living mirror
I reflect all
I attend to

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I cannot
change
the source of
what I reflect

I cannot
distort
the source of
what I reflect

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I can
change
the image
of the source

I can
distort
the image
of the source

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I can reflect
what is greater
than I

I can reflect
what is stronger
than I

I can reflect
what is better
than I

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

My heat
does not
heat the source

My cold
does not
cool the source

My hardness
does not
harden the source

My dullness
does not
dull the source

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I am not
overcome
by the size of
what I reflect

I am not
weighed down
by the weight of
what I reflect

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I am not
what I reflect

I am not
the source of
what I reflect

I am not
thoughts or
feelings about
my reflections

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I become
disturbed
disturbing
what I reflect

My reflections
change with
the calmness
or roughness
of my surface

Like a lake
reflecting
the moon

I cannot own
my reflections

I cannot claim
my reflections

I cannot become
my reflections

I need
light to reflect
what I reflect

I am a living mirror
