Late 18th-century French mercury glass mirror on wooden cabinet, with peeling, faded paint
For the One Deep Breath prompt "weathered/aging," a haiku:
Gaze in mercury
glass, aged and mottled mirror

and, like the mirror, as we age, our eyes become softer & kinder, not so clearly focused on imperfections.

Interesting enjambment between line 1 and 2. It could be a starting point for a much longer poem.

Do you own the cabinet? It is very lovely, and so is your poem.

haunting..........masking imperfections....my first thought when I saw your mirror photo was that it was purchased on Diagon Alley by Harry Potter.........I wonder who lives in the mirror?? :)

This is my favorite color of green Tara and I found a Santa in the after Christmas sales garbed and decked out in exactly this green and accented in festive gold. He is a great looking and nontraditional Santa.

You take the most wonderful photos, Tara. This mirro brings back such memories. You've taken a "detriment" of the old mercury glass and turned it into a "plus" as it masks imperfections. Well done!

I like the look of this mirror, it shows a lot of history behind it. By the way, check out my Gratitude list for today, you are well-mentioned :)
