reflections from the other side of the looking glass

I see a semblance of—
after searching,
staring down that rabbit hole
finally noticing small
tell-tale signs

flashes of memories
imbued with peculiarity;
tinkling whispers of youth
where joy is carved

highlights of decades flown
dance upon each line,
freckles dazzle
born of backwards sunlight
and dripping grains of sand

textures varying
from abstract art
to the smooth design
of a bygone era,
palpable in speckled
almost unrecognizable remnants

from inside to the out,
madness of time
holds its own incessant
tick tock
as the pendulum swings
forth and back
without end

surrender of the chase
is truth in reconciling;
rushing wishes
only to grasp at blinks
as the white rabbit
always makes swift getaway

slipping back through
the looking glass
mirroring reflections
of space and time
in surrealistic
tandem haunts

leaving a

That wishes and dreams
can go a long long way...
