POEM: Mirror Winning In a Close Shave

That mine-blowing moment finally came
Where he saw his enemy
Face to efface
That fateful
Infinitely more dangerous
And dreadfully more thorny
Than blood drawn in a close shave
Like a glance to the
None other
Then his own
in a singular drop
An rendering
Sow profoundly more
Than mirror winning

This poem reflects quiet literally those moments of epiphany when we see ourselves and our enemy as one.  I am deeply intrigued by the psychological of , seeing the world as we are rather than simply as the world happens to be.  The face of the enemy frightens me only when I see how much it resembles mine. Stanislaw J. Lec quote PEACE BUTTONThis egocentric lens distorts larger truths but can serve as a powerful tool for .  Focusing on one’s self as an instrument of perception can offer valuable incites into how we navigate the world, often through a fun house mirror or speculative shadowy glances.  Such reflection can be mighty humbling.  I have been struck often enough by the and cosmological that wee are won by recognizing the sundry losses and fallings short that we each and bring to the world.  I have found that reflecting on the oneness of and has led me to be a better person in my peace of the whirled.  Plus, the deep satisfaction of the of one has proven to me sow profoundly more than mirror winning.  May you find countless moments that help you transcend mine-blowing ours.
