Saturday Centus!

Hey everyone! Today I'm happy to be joining Mizz Jenny for Saturday Centus and the prompt is:
The reflection in the mirror.
The Reflection In The Mirror
No doubt the one I'm hardest on,
couldn't be any clearer.
No patience, cut no slack,
won't even take time to hear her.

I really must begin to treat,
the reflection in the mirror,
kinder, with more compassion,
and hold it a little dearer.

Learn from the past, let it go,
tomorrow is nearer.
Rejoice, embrace the day,
stand behind and cheer her.

Have a happy day:@)


  1. Uplifting use of the prompt. Nice job.

  2. I like it, Lynn! I'm horrible at writing poetry, which is so odd since I really do love to read it.

  3. Lynn, this is a great poem. Could be written about me, too. xo,

  4. I love this! How true is it? I try to look in the mirror as little as possible since I don't like or know who that is any more. I should take your advice and learn a little compassion for her.

  5. Amen. We should print that poem and glue it on our mirrors. :)

  6. I used to do a little poetry writing. I have not tried in a long time. Seems when you get older things just do not function as well. That include your thinker.

  7. Lovely post..Happy Pink Saturday...

  8. Be very kind to yourself sweetie♥

  9. We are hardest on ourselves, this is true.
    Christine xoxo

  10. I love the poem! It holds such meaning for most of us I think.

  11. Wow, what a powerful poem...the words hit me in the heart.

  12. Hi Lynn, I love the poem and we should heed what it says. The words strike home.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  13. So true ! You hit the nail on the head !

  14. This is really nicely done. Kudos. I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

  15. A lesson for us all.

    Wonderfully written.

  16. Great job and a great message, too!


  17. That reflection i see in my own mirror freaks me out -

    Feral's response poem

    "Ive forgotten to brush my hair,
    including my outside mare's
    My flooded yard of spring soup,
    is showing now on my big croup
    And that treework of paper is piling up,
    on those dark circles behind my coffee cup
    Will I ever see,
    again the loveliness of forestry?
    So lets ignore the negative reflection,
    and put on the gear of...
    Happier's SELF PROTECTION!!!

    You are a writer, happier! You poem is great -AS you can see, I could learn from it! You should submit your poetry somewhere, and I hope you already have...!

  18. You are so gooood at this kind of thing. :)

  19. Great post!! Saturday Centus is a wonderful idea. I did go to the link to see how to participate. Unfortunately one cannot read her blog due to her background selection...darn. Anyway, I love what you have done.

  20. I could cry reading this. I am having one of those days but nothing drastic. I am just making a mountain out of a mole hill. I need to freakin' chill!

  21. This is just a wonderful piece! I should print it out and stick it on my 'fridge!!!

  22. Happy weekend! Don't forget to come over and share a recipe at Savory Sunday!!

  23. Lynn,
    This is wonderful. You have a way with words.


  24. Very nicely done. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  25. You are so right that we need to embrace what is here today. Great take on the propmt!

  26. Heartfelt inspiration at its best. I think I need to keep revisiting and rereading this poem. Thank you for it.

  27. I love this. Nice use of the prompt and some sage advice we could all use. Good job.

  28. Great little poem with huge meaning!

  29. I love this, I feel like I need to print it & post it every where to remind me!! Great job:-)

  30. Love this! LOVE THIS!

    First I read this. Then I read it out loud. Then I thought what a cool gift this poem would be packaged with a lovely hand mirror for a friend who's being too hard on herself.


    just in case you didn't get it...

    I LOVED THIS!!!!!!


Thanks for stopping by!
