Rippled in Mirrors by Isla Mannolini (Highly Commended)

I look towards me,
Watching as my reflection.
Being the mirror of my future,
Ripples cross me.
Bubbles lift me to my feet,
Standing face to face,
With my enemy.

Touching the mirror,
I see sadness, I see victory,
I see pain and sorrow,
I see death, I see war
I feel the war I hear the war
I touch the war I see smell the war.
I am the war.

Listening to the ringmaster
Calling my name
Trapeze artists, magicians
Lions and elephants
Listening to the mighty roar
Of the rippled image
Of me.
