Mirror Poem ...Synaptic Gaps





Murky recollections
a tainted memory
delicious slipping
once wide open spaces
slowly sealing over
with the spackling of age
expectations fall away
neurons blink cerebral
synaptic gaps once shackled
now free to glide the halcyon days.

Now free to glide the halcyon days
synaptic gaps once shackled
neurons blink cerebral
expectations fall away
with the spackling of age
slowly sealing over
once wide open spaces
delicious slipping
a tainted memory
murky recollections.

ha very cool..never heard about mirror poems before but really like it...works well with the theme as well because of the double reflection..nice

Brian Miller said...

Hmmm, never read a mirror poem -- the second half felt like it had a natural flow.

So let's see -- "Mirror Poem" , maybe about "Mirror Neurons" which hopefully ripen into greater fullness as you enter the halcyon days and expectations fall away!

Oh yes, in case you haven't heard of them:

Sabio...how long did you spend finding that mirror neuron or did you already know that? I am amazed at that random bit of info..

Claudia, I love mirror poems because they reflect the same idea just in a different order.

Actually, Brian, it is very easy. Give it a try and you will see.

His FF...do you feel the spackling?

I was going to say I'd never heard of mirror poems but I just bought a book with a concrete mirror poem in it...they're fascinating and I love what you've done with this one, it's like a whole chain reaction and then back again...this is really clever.

quite impressive; I imagine this form can be quite tricky to pull off, but this definitely had a nice flow.

Very nice painting that reminds my of aspects of Alzhiemer's memory loss that leaves faint glimmerings. I had an elderly friend as a child who would looks at me and think I was his wife and he was young again. I never bothered to correct. The joy on his face.
