Reflection

Who would have thought

that deep in the glass 

which forms a fine carafe 

a picture lay

shaped by the curves 

and limits of the glass

itself ?

A secret hidden 

by the skill of the man

who blew the molten mass

and captured 

an invisible world

which only revealed itself

when light of the right

intensity

became a key

that opened my eyes.
