Daily Prompt: Mirror, Mirror

The Mirror

The Mirror (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

When I look in the mirror I see the face God gave to me,

passing years, wrinkles, humility and a shadow of His creation,

linked like golden chains with others through humanity.

It is only an image, only a reflection, not an imitation,

Just the weathering of time and mellowing of a younger woman,

carrying the same personality and soul given to me at birth,

Like other images, yet the real me, in every way a human.

Mirror, mirror, smiling from my home here on earth.
