Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday #Poetry Challenge – #Haibun – Rejuvenation

I have tried a new format this week (for me) as part of Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 119 with synonyms for ‘Mystery and Attract’

I have chosen ‘Secret and Draw’ for my key words this week and I am also trying my hand at a Haibun… here is the link  where you will find a description of this form which is a combination of prose and poetry.

Rejuvenation

I have discovered the secret to eternal youth. I stand before the mirror. With eyes almost closed the image blurs. Wrinkles disappear. Hair regains its colour. The extra pounds fall away. I am tall and strong. A reflection of how I used to be. I draw the image towards me absorbing its essence.

Do not be deceived
Challenge the silver backed mirror
Remain young at heart.

 

I hope that you will head over and enjoy finding out more about this challenge. thanks Sally
