We Are The Mirror by catch---22 We Are The Mirror by catch---22
The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
We are the mirror as well as the face in it.

We are tasting the taste,
This minute of eternity.
We are pain and what cures pain, both.

We are the sweet cold water
And the jar that pours...

~ Rumi

Love the poem. You are such a romantic! I might have cropped this to be a total 50/50 split to make it even more effective as a reflection. Pretty shot.

I think that the colors and contrast is perfect. The hues are brilliant. I do have something that's bugging me though. Where is your focus? I feel like the picture is just amateur without a focal point.
