FirielIt feels nice, listening to it that way. :) If I'm hearing it as the individual voices and conversations it can get overwhelming sometimes. <.<

Jadisfire. fire is good. I want to re read this one when I have more time to enjoy the heat and light and magic. I might comment more meaningfully then,

Jadistired morning. I think the way you wrote it expresses the feeling, but since it's not a nice feeling I don't enjoy it. well written but Ironicly THEREFOR not a poem I like much.

Jadistouching times...I like this very much. it reminds me of the poems I wrote in my first few years online discovering international internet friendships. I have a great fondness for that time in my life, so this poem is very appealing to me because of it's nostalgic value to me. 
I don't know Lady of Shallot. Is the dark mirror you show us here the 'thought a glass darkly" of Paul in the bible or some other dark mirror? it doesn't matter, I have a fondness also for dark mirrors, and mirrors in general.

FirielGMTA, eh? ;) I imagine a lot of folks feel similar about the wonders of the 'net when they discover the joys on long-distance friendships.

The dark mirror is both a reference to Paul, and a continuation of the Lady of Shallot metaphor. The Lady of Shallot was a character from the King Arthur legends, made famous in a Victorian poem, who sat in a tower and wove pictures in tapestries based on the glimpses of the world she saw in her mirror. She had been told in a prophecy that is she ever looked out her window to see the real thing, she would die. And so it's kind of - there's a lot of beauty to be found in the glimpses in the mirror, but when do I get to turn around and see the real thing? When do I get to move from reflections of reflections, to seeing the people and places I'm growing to love long-distance in reality? And with some people I'm not really sure if I'll get out of mirror-mode while I'm on this earth, or if I've got to wait for heaven to see the real them - "face to face and knowing fully as I am fully known", to take Paul a little out of context. ;)
