An Elemental Mirror


Water is a mirror

Reflecting back at us

Past, present and future

What has been

What is

And what might be

A surface for scrying

Revealing the hidden

Secrets of the depths

Offering glimpses

Of arcane wisdom

Transcending visions

Reminding us

That we

And all that is

Will always be more

Than we can ever know

Ever appreciate

Ever understand

For the magic that

Binds all together

Is a complex web

In which the mysteries

Are concealed

But those who dare to look

On the reflective surface

Of an elemental mirror

May just start to see
