How They Met Themselves


55 words exactly with the inspiration of another of Rossetti's art pieces

How They Met Themselves

On a fine day a couple strayed
To walk among the trees
Imagine their delight
What a sight
When they met their mirrored mes
Manners held their course
Doppelgangers indeed
Someone watching
Could not tell which was real
Or which was thee
Sitting upon the ground
Had a lively luncheon
While all were in town

An interesting twist to the prompt.....meeting one's mirrored self would be quite startling, at least in my case. Photos are bad enough! LOL.

I hope to never meet a mirrored me...my thoughts went straight to
1. he sure has a great leg out there.
2. they are talking about a duel, she fainted.
3. I wonder if they know Sir Lancelot?
I am hopeless right?

"When they met their mirrored mes"--love this line. I read somewhere that we each have six Doppelgangers worldwide. Can you imagine that? Wow. So bizarre.

Very enigmatic.

That's one mad tea party!

Ah yes, 'they' do say we fall in love with ourselves seen in the other. I like your fun take on it, and phrases like 'mirrored mes' and 'which was thee'.

That is an experience I'd not want to have.

anything with doppelgangers is bound to be a fun read! Nice!

I like it- had to look back at the pic at first because I just glanced at it. I wonder what we would do if we walked up on our own selves.

brudberg said...

A ghastly experience to meet your doppelgänger..

Kerry O'Connor said...

Your narrative captures that moment of surprise and wonder very well.

Meeting ourselves in the other is something we do so well--always a shock when we find out maybe that mirror is cracked.

Interesiting idea, meeting one's self. Could be fun, or rather disappointing.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Interesting. I just saw a show about a doppelganger haunting a young woman. Scary.

Marian said...

Love the rhymes in this, and especially the mes.

grapeling said...

that would be a shock! ~

Lynne said...

I am continually amazed at how you can do this . . .
Very good . . .

One must keep to propriety when meeting a mirror image. Love it!

Susan Anderson said...
