The eye to eye thing,
Can we still do that
Or would one of us blink away?

In the end
I have to be true
Only to myself.

I can still look into your mirror
And see us both
Though you are gone.

  3. Hi Ina,

    Thanks for your earlier email, it was very nice to chat the other day.

    I have only been able to reply on the blog as anonymous to your latest poem.

    It is a great piece of concise poetry.

    Best Wishes,



    • Hi Alan, thank you. It is great you made a comment in spite of technical problems (or wordpress issues ) I hope you have had a nice ride through the woods of Teschelling, although the weather might have stopped you a bit 🙂 Looking forward to seeing you again and wishing you lots of success with your beautiful photos and poems!

  4. This is beautiful Ina, and definitely a case where less is more. Just lovely. L&H ❤️ xxx

  5. So very beautiful Ina, and filled with deep feelings.

  6. I’m not sure what to make of this one, Ina; it could mean different things to different readers, or even to the same reader on different days. To me right now, it feels brave.

  7. I like this one very much. Sometimes simplest-stated is best.

  8. beautiful, telling and with a haunting melancholy

  9. A poem which a person can truly reflect on:-)

  10. So much ‘said’ in such few words. So lovely, too, {{{Ina}}}. XO ❤
