What a beautiful and inspirational poem about love centred around refections in a mirror. 'Visions in the Mirror' is an original, contemporary poem by London poet, Elle Smith which is packed with imagination:
Visions in the Mirror
Morning comes, so up I get,
and rush to look in the mirror.
Remembering your tender grip,
as your arms gently hug me.
I hold my breath anticipating,
that you will be in the picture.
All I see is another fading vision,
us together like we used to be.
We are in the park on a sunny day,
laughter and smiles in abundance.
Time just melts, when we’re together;
as love plays out to its own melody.
Neither of us want to ever leave,
with sunshine on our romantic moment.
I glimpse again, now we are at dinner,
playing games, as we look, at each other.
More memories come, as I close my eyes,
of you holding me tightly in your arms,
again safely you watch over.
I want to say those magic words ‘I love you’,
but I’m afraid you won’t say it back,
so again I freeze in my mirror,
I reflect but it won’t give you back,
into that bed disappointed I return.
My duvet seems an empty place,
until I realize you were there all alone.

Relativity of the Strong is a powerful and reflective piece of poetry which turns the theory of relativity upside down, as this original poem looks at moral standards and the importance of the strong in relation to other aspects of our lives. Elle Smith delivers a punch of the worth of those with tenacity and strength in our society for the greater good of humanity.
It is often hard to imagine that our actions have consequences far-reaching than we imagine. Well, this contemporary original poem Invisible Footprint by creative Elle Smith, allows you to pause for a moment to think about the footprints we seemingly leave on the planet in terms of pollution, damage to the ecosystem, loss of endangered species and climate change. Hopefully, if we collectively pause to consider the consequences we will all interact with the planet in a more meaningful way.
We are all familiar with the Benjamin Franklin quote: “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, we all must eventually succumb to death, and this original poem 'A Right Time To Die' by Elle Smith explores in a humorous piece of poetry a battle to remain alive whilst in the clutches of death.
