In the Looking Glass

The poem shared here is inspired by a writing challenge offered on Impromtu Promptlings. In part, the poem is also inspired by The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Only Sixteen.” Take a look at the challenges (and my poem).mirror

Mirror, Mirror

Behind me,
in the glass,
I spy

a smiling troll,
his skin
as pocked

as stone,
reaching
for a brittle

book,
yellow
and cracked.

I’ll sit on his lap,
live a story,
comforted;

today,
I am still young.
