Mirror, Mirror

Wednesday again and time for my weekly fix of Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word piece of flash to the weekly photo prompt. Alas, I’ve once more succumbed to the curse of rhyme as my fiction has taken off with a bronzed Spanish wrestler for a short sabbatical. The latest postcard was rather short, written in eyeliner and stained with red wine, so the trip may last a little longer than anticipated……

Why don’t you follow the link and have a go,

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,

Catching features,

Warts and all,

Falling in and falling under,

Spells that cast are pulled asunder,


Mirror, mirror, say my name,

Do you know,

From where I came,

Running on and running over,

Time is lost that won’t recover,


Mirror, mirror, where am I,

Chasing something,

Don’t know why,

Looking here and looking yonder,

Trailing secrets as I wander,


Mirror, mirror, face unseen,

Show me now,

Where I have been,

Living with and living in,

This mirrored cell I’m caught within.
