Mosaic Monday: #140: Lost for Words

AND
 
REFLECTION
She stops to drink, 
Her animal tongue  lapping the sweetness
Of  clear running water, 
Thirsty after a lively tryst with her sibling cubs,

She knows nothing of reflection, 

Sated, she stops,  
peering into the likeness, 
Stream of consciousness 
weaves a tale of a sibling.

  5. Consciousness seems to be the favored stream out here on the poetic trail. I have wondered how animals regard a reflection. But I'm still struggling with the notion that most of them do not perceive reality in color.

  10. Love this, and I'm especially struck by:
    "She knows nothing of reflection"

    I often wish I knew nothing of reflection as far as mirrors go, and was free to just go about my business without so much thought to self. Oh, to just enjoy the forward momentum of that stream...

  13. She knows nothing of reflection,
    Sated, she stops,
    peering into the likeness

    It is true Gillena! It takes an unrelated event to bring one back to reality following a quarrel. Wonderful write, Ma'am!

  21. I will carry the concept of animals looking at their reflections in streams with me a bit ... had never considered that they did. Cheers, Gillena.

  25. I sometimes wonder what animals think. Their intelligence is different from ours.
