Past my reflection,

Beyond the mirrored surface,

Lives another world,

Linking all humanity,

Understood mostly by fish.

A clear mirror lake.
Peering at their reflection,
Two cranes, side by side.
Do they see one another?
Can they know, love at first sight?

The dive is graceful
Both swift and purpose driven
Toward the mirror lake
If only I had those wings
I could catch my reflection.
