A shimmer of light
cast upon a blue mirror.

I see my spirit reflected on a ripple.

Light upon a river,
when wind comes,
it is blurred into illusion.

    Wow…. He was such a reflective toddler! I am not surprised, although completely delighted by this piece of work and art. Hope he has the opportunity to write more.

    A lot of depth! I can never make my poems that short and have them say so much.
