Tale Weaver #129: Around The House 20.07.17

The challenge:

In Disney films, or nightmares, or psychedelic ramblings, inanimate objects take on lives of their own: talking teapots; rampaging brooms; breathing walls; philosophizing couches.
Weave a tale from the perspective of an object, say something around your house, or within the broader world.

We are the same, you and I.
Your eyes are my eyes, but you do not see as I see.
Your world is full of all things tangible, mine just a shadow of where you are.
Light and dark are the same for me as they are for you.
I do not know friendships, or have a sense of taste, smell, touch, or sound.
I can only see.
I do not exist unless you stand before me.
Am I beautiful?
Are you?
Mirror, Mirror.
A life of reflection.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Excellent interpretation of the prompt — reads like a riddle with character. Mirrors are reflections of ourselves, but as you point out, they have lives that we just see as extensions of ourselves.
    Thanks for playing along!

    This is a good response Di, I like that idea of the mirror only existing when someone stands in front of it…well done.
