Upon Further Reflection

I kneel down by the edge of the water,
my reflection staring back at me. 
This image of me is distorted,
stretching my freckled face in a
multitude of directions. Long, skinny,
fat, wide - the rippling water makes me forget
what I truly look like. 
Maybe that's a good thing. 
Here, I have nothing to compare myself with
besides Mother Nature, and we're both
pretty damn beautiful.

Come back every day this week to hear more from abby!
