My eyes reflected in a mirror , my face reflected in my eyes.

Where do I find myself?

Are you there, in the silvered surface?

My eyes reflect that image back to the mirror.
I look up close.
There they are: my eyes, with my image reflected in them, and there are my eyes again reflecting my image…

A vertigo of abstraction!

Luckily, I can break the enchantment.

I turn around
and dance.

Mirror of mirrors

Espejo de espejos

¿Dónde encontrarme?

¿Estás ahí, en la superficie plateada?

Mis ojos reflejan esa imagen en el espejo.
Me acerco para mirar.
Ahí están: mis ojos, con mi imagen reflejada en ellos, y mis ojos reflejando otra vez mi imagen…

¡Me da vértigo de abstracción!

Por suerte, puedo romper el encantamiento.

Me doy vuelta
y salgo a bailar.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
