Word Prompt—Mirror

The following set of poems have been composed with the weekly word prompt, given by my fellow writer and dear friend, Brenda.

Brenda is a wonderful creative writer, and has composed many beautiful poems, on HubPages and other online writing platforms. She is right, when she says that word prompts, help creativity.
Her weekly word prompts have inspired many fellow writers, and there is a continuous flow of good creative writing, by them.


Word Prompt— Mirror

’Mirror, mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of us all,’

On reading about this word prompt, I was at once reminded of these lines, from the fairy tale, which I am sure, all of us have read in our childhood, and remember by heart.

Therefore, the basic theme of my poems in this post, is to highlight this.
The mirror can reflect only your outward appearance or beauty. The real beauty is your inner self.

We can look at the mirror, and find many shortcomings with ourselves. But, at the same time, we can feel good about ourselves, by counting our blessings.

Hope you like my little effort, Brenda.

Mirror— Acrostic and Short Poems

Short Poem 1:

I don't need the mirror,

To see my deep inner Reflections,

I just close my eyes.


Short Poem 2:


Looking at the humble mirror,

Is sometimes curiously important to me,

To see how others see me.


Acrostic Poem:


Mirror knows all,

I can't hide from it,

Right or wrong,

Remorse or repentence,

Only one confidant,

Reflections of my true self.
