More on a theme

The loved-one's aura

We often cannot see ourselves
As well as those who love us can.
Whilst aware of contour, shade and colour,
Even the highest definition vision, 
Will often fail to sense, the loved-one's aura..
If it's not that we are lacking in sight, 
Perhaps it's that near undetectable reflected light,
From the beholder's eye, that makes us glow so brightly.
Enhancing resolution and adding layers of clarity
No mere mirror could reflect
Nor finest man-made lens hope to truly capture.

Loveloved one

I like this one too. One to inspire all with hope, I think. Whenever I'm feeling ugly and old I will reflect on my invisible aura and take heart. Not so good for those who are unloved though...

I enjoyed your poems.
