Spiegel im Spiegel


             

6:45, the sunrise

and the echo of the sunrise,

sunrise mirrored

in the painting on the wall

at the foot of our bed, a mirror


mirror on the wall

framed by a sheer

curtain on the window

framing bars of light

yellow and orange


Outside, the sun

unseen, out the window

wakes the water meadow

and our neighbor's garden,

dark furrows thrown

into relief

by a thin covering of snow.
