A small collection of my mirror loop structures

Many times poetry is considered an expression of English .
However the vocabulary is deep and wide .
I think the Mirror Loop structure is a good example of how to extend and build on this .

Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry .

Mirror Loop

Created by Paul McCann .

Imagine turning cogs round and round .
Spinning thoughts,
Soulful and physic.

Synchronizing thoughts spinning round and round .
Cogs turning .
Imagine weaving passages.
Corners comforting cushions on relaxed souls
Lives like evidence

Who Knows What It Means

By Paul McCann

Erased and forgotten .
Faded signs gone .
Somehow words lost their message .
Its meaning disappeared .
Just when and where .
Why and who left footprints through life .

The Last Word

Hospitable and homely mind
a being goes thinking
as prose opposes poetry.
Writing words without merit lost its meaning.
The picture unfinished
The ignorance of thinking.
Still I am critical.
(now in reverse)

Critical am I still thinking of ignorance.
The unfinished picture.
The meaning .
Its lost merit or value without words .
Writing poetry opposes prose as thinking goes,
being a mind homely and hospitable.

Love In Vain

Jesus had died .
Lips were sealed .
Glory that God had revealed.
Christ glorified .

To Know Gods Mercy

Listen and learn to counsel the wise .
We have life eternal .
God forever lives .
That knowledge and truth is for all .
With trust we must not doubt .
Christian are we .
Love is God .
Yes there is help divine.
There is mercy for asking
Prayers and purgatory .
Souls coming in and going out .
Out going and in coming souls .
Purgatory and prayers asking for mercy .
Is there divine help ?
Is there ?
Yes - God is love.
We are Christian .
(now in reverse)
Doubt not , must we trust with all ?
For is truth and knowledge that lives forever God ?
Eternal life have we .
Wise the counsel to learn and listen .

Between Me You And God
By Paul McCann
Always and forever is God within man and woman .
Soul and body , the heart and mind .
The grace of receiving a wonder of presence or occasion .
An unexplainable something beyond understanding .
Pathways overgrown in mystery , beyond time .
In hanging gardens , secret wisdoms seeds sewn .
From things unseen are faith in deed and action .
God is good how true it is .
Miracles are there when God is commanding .
(now in reverse)
Commanding is God when there are miracles .
Is it true how good God is .
Action and deed in faith are unseen things from sewn seeds.
Wisdoms secret gardens hanging in time beyond mystery in overgrown pathways .
Understanding beyond something unexplainable .
An occasion or presence of wonder .
A receiving of grace .
The mind and heart . the body and soul .

Woman and man within God is forever and always .

Night Café
By Paul McCann

Lights faded dim and soft in me, with blended coffee,
The brew strange,
A new one, Mmm,
Alone there sat I listening for hours,
I had poetry and espresso with bites.
(now in reverse)

Bites with espresso and poetry had I,
Hours for listening,
I sat there alone.
Mmm,one new, a strange brew,
The coffee blended with me in soft and dim faded lights. By Paul McCann Comforting Thoughts

By Paul McCann

Gods present evidence lives .
Souls relaxed on cushions,
comforting corners
passages weaving .
Imagine turning cogs round and round .
Spinning thoughts,
Soulful and physic.
(now in reverse)
Physic and soulful.
Synchronizing thoughts spinning round and round .
Cogs turning .
Imagine weaving passages.
Corners comforting cushions on relaxed souls
Lives like evidence
present Gods miracles.

Ghost Writer
By Paul McCann
Night pulsating a movement in shadow .
Just image an almost unworldly experience that was unreal.
So deep .
So I wrote writers ghost .
Haunted words .
Are they here ?
I write .
Write I here .
They are words .
Haunted ghost writers ,
Wrote I so deep ,
So unreal was that experience , unworldly almost ,
An image ,
Just Shadow in movement ,
A pulsating night .

Seek Out God
By Paul McCann
Seek we both spiritual and human being.
Harmony in God and man .
Music is life in love with God .
Praise in song,
a wonder to understand .
Celebrate life and love
Worship we him with one heart pure, gentle and strong.
Create ways everyday to love his name
his glorified word and song .
(now in reverse)
Song and word glorified his name .
his love today.
Every ways create.
Strong and gentle,
pure heart
one with him.
We worship love and life.
Celebrate .
To wonder a song in praise.
God with love in life is music .
Man and God in harmony.
Being human and spiritual .
Both we seek .

Rubbles In Babble
By Paul McCann
Almighty God
by spoken tongues expression defies logic,
toil and trouble and boil and babble.
Down falls rubble as pride falls down .
Our mystery of interpretation .
The tongues spoken were strange
but not were they mad .
No, drunk they were not.
Confused and lost were they and understood nobody.
(now in reverse)

Nobody understood and they were lost and confused .
Not were they drunk, no.
Mad they were not but strange were spoken tongues.
The interpretation of mystery .
Our downfalls pride,
as rubble falls down.
Babble and boil and trouble and toil .
Logic defies expression .
Tongues spoken by almighty God .

The Way Ahead
(My First Mirror Loop The Way Ahead was published in Colophon Magazine June 1999)
Paul McCann
Sublime pools bathed in sunlight rippled,
Where words swept me in oceans deep
Time after time heaven in hearts are captured .
Love flows on and on endlessly.
(now in reverse)

Endlessly on and on flows love.
Captured are hearts in heaven time after time.
Subconsciously beep oceans in me swept words,
Where rippled sunlight
in bathed pools sublime.
