Hi Siva,

To me, a mirror poem is a Visual Poem (VisPo), and displays a reflexive quality: A = A.



like leaving the cradle, then returning to the cradle
like leaving home, then returning home



Thanks for reading & your interest,

I love the brevity and simplicity of your poem. I enjoy it when a poet can say so much with so words. Kudos on this; enjoyed it very much :)
