Drinking from her own image


Lady at a mirror


As in sleeping-drink spices
softly she loosens in the liquid-clear
mirror her fatigued demeanor;
and she puts her smile deep inside.

And she waits while the liquid
rises from it; then she pours her hair
into the mirror, and, lifting one
wondrous shoulder from the evening gown,

she drinks quietly from her image. She drinks
what a lover would drink feeling dazed,
searching it, full of mistrust; and she only

beckons to her maid when at the bottom
of her mirror she finds candles, wardrobes,
and the cloudy dregs of a late hour.

Rainer Maria Rilke



The painting I used for this week challenge at Three Muses is 
a creation of Pino Daeni (1939 -2010)
For Three Muses - Reflections or Repetitions
