Really Awfully Long Reflection

Haiku Monday Theme: Reflection

010813 Sea ReflectionImage shown is real
Though not there, but only where
Mirror can reveal.

(As usual, I insist on complicating matters by rhyming it.  It drives the haiku purists dilly!)

P.S. – An afterthought version:

What is there is real
What you see will just not be
Where your eyes reveal

    I would like to say I resemble that remark. Actually I do! Here or there, anyway? :p

    Never mind. A long hot day. All I know is that I thought the poem was funny for some reason.

    Like what I can see; | though what I see ain’t real I | know I see the sea
