Gazing into the mirror

Gazing into the mirror
wondering what lay ahead
I saw your image
take on another form

Idle fantasies woven
from threads of quiet belief
I heard music
still to be composed

of an unfinished screenplay

While I vacillated
between dreams and action
you seized by blurred negative a
and printed yesterday’s vision
shading uncertain colours
into vivid clarity

Gazing into the mirror I saw your image...
