Flash Poetry: Reflection by Cathy MacKenzie

Welcome to the Spot Writers. This month’s prompt was to look out the window and write about what was out there.

Today’s post comes to us from Cathy MacKenzie. Through her nanoscopic publishing company MacKenzie Publishing (nanoscopic is a thousand times smaller than microscopic, but, hey, everyone knows smaller is better, to steal a phrase from a fellow writer), will be presenting her first anthology, OUT OF THE CAVE, 21 tales for youth 13+, by 21 authors. The book will be available on August 1, 2016, from Amazon, in print and e-book, as well as at other venues.

reflection

by Cathy MacKenzie

tap tap tap

face looks back at me

tap tap tap

I turn

tap

she turns

tap

fingers slender

tap tap

fingers stubby

tap tap

face stares

hoary, haggard

face moves

bright, blissful

tap tap

tap tap

she taps

I tap

shadow on the lens

behind the frame

weary and worn

tap tap

you sigh

I sigh

a life done, gone

tap tap tap
