Reflection of the Universe

Poetry the earth lit up with all the lights of the continents against the dark space

A broken piece of mirror
looked at another broken piece of mirror.
It traced the jagged edges of the other,
so uniquely shattered.

Some all sharp teeth, some cutting edges,
some peaked mountains and deep grooved valleys,
some lightning struck,
some blade like and some needle thin.

The list goes on,
for no two pieces were broken exactly alike
yet they are all reflective the same.
Reflective of each other, of all that it hears,
sees, dreams and everything in between.

If ever, all these fractured pieces, pieced together,
I wonder,
what would it Reflect?
