Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

November 8th, 2009

We do Qigong in a room
with a mirrored wall.
My eyes stray
from  “cloud hands”
to see the reflection
of a stranger, a mimic
of my every move.

With each motion  I make
I hear an echo, rhythmic
and demanding, “who
are you?” breathe in,
“who are you?” breathe out.
The quest never ends.
