Morning sun rises

On the window down the street

Reflection but real

  1. Morning or mourning? If the latter, this is an immensely complex poem.

    • AshiAkira says:

      Awfully glad you spotted it. Such mistake not the first time. Enigma, stigma; exacerbate, exasperate, etc. Complex even without mistakes. No wonder I flunked English at high school.

      • I bet you speak a whole lot more languages, more fluently than I do. It can work with mourning – you have to see the ‘reflection but real’ as a reference to someone who used to be there, but is no longer… poetry can be very elastic.

      • AshiAkira says:

        So, “mourning” might work as well, if a story can be created in the depth of imagination. “Poetry can be very elastic.” Yes, I understand. Your comment is so beautiful, and instructive.
