Fallen mirror
Fresh perspective
Different strategy
New outcome

Oh happy day!
Thank you fallen mirror
Without you
I would be stuck in…
Same old…same old.

great post...funy co-incidence - I just went through our entire house and emptied every room and closet of extraneous (sp?) stuff of which was a huge standing miror- all the "stuff" is gone now-outta the house into someone elses...and it gives us such a fresh perspective! Less is more! Cheers!

Sometimes it takes something to give us the fresh perspective we need, well done.

This was great. I love the metaphor and the message it contains. Oh happy day when our old mirrors shatter.

I enjoyed the optimism behind the fallen mirror and the idea of a "fresh perspective" where you least expect it!

Yes! Sometimes we have to make smithereens out of old ways

Old ways washed on the cycle of life, leaving fresh linens for the new beginnings.

Sometimes, we only need to tilt the mirror, to see everything so differently. Good Magpie.

Change can be sparked by unexpected things! But change can be exactly what's needed at times. :)

Thank heavens for mirrors!

Definitely a 'new view' and an encouraging one at that. Thank you.

Dear Kathi: In "A New View" the fallen mirror can be viewed as something negative or positive. We have the option to choose. You choose wisely!

"Fresh perspective
Different strategy
New outcome"

This +++ impetus will change the world! Great poem!

Lovely poem and much to contemplate. Today especially, I appreciated reading your words, 'cause a new perspective would help me greatly.

nice i realy like the pairing "fallen mirror/fresh perspective" because it opens it up to our perspective changing b/c of something random. think many of us could use a new one...smiles.

i meant to thank you for your email last week. it was a great encouragement and i am pushing myself with long form. Matter of fact I have a private blog where i can experiment with longer pieces.

anyway will drop you an email back its been a busy week. thanks again
