Eugi’s Weekly Prompt ~ #Poetry

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Flutter – April 29, 2021

We fly, we dance, we live.
We are fleeting, our beauty remembered.
There is double power in reflection.
If you see us hovering over water
Make a wish, it will come true.
Foolish thought, you’re thinking.
How do you suppose I became this way?
My wish was to fly.
Here I am in blue splendour.
Before my time is up, I will wish again
To be as I was, with a life of a butterfly remembered…

Driving home under purple skies
Magic enough you’d think
Until I look at my side mirror
The moons reflection didn’t match
The black reversed moon worried me
Is it a sign of things to come?
Does it whisper of strange days ahead?
Could it be dark fortune
Waiting to gather its own?
I wondered how this portent would affect me…

I awoke this morning
The clock telling me it was too early.
Looking around the room for a moment
I thought I might be dreaming
A hurricane had swept through my bedroom
Wardrobe doors open
Clothes on hangers flung across the floor
Drawers pulled out at odd angles
Someone had been looking for something.
I made my way across the room
Stopping in front of the full-length mirror.
I stood staring at the silver backed glass
Empty of my image
The sound of my scream bounced around the walls
back to my ears
I realized who had ransacked my room
I made this mess, looking for myself…
