Doppelgänger





see all her faces

identical faces or so it would seem
variation on a monotonous theme
which face is real, how could it be
probability exists
there are many like me



for the Toads

  1. Some days I have one vision, one expression on my many faces, others leave those around me asking who are you. Thanks so much for taking part in the prompt!

  2. I feel that sometimes the world is just opposing mirrors... infinite number of me.

  4. I love the line: 'variation on a monotonous theme'!

  5. So far I haven't confused you with one of your many. But then I lack the sense of facial recognition (there's a name for that). So if you see me on a Princess ship or Oceania one be sure to say hello, I won't recognize you until you tell me who you are. But, Helen, beware my doppelganger unless you're looking for a defense attorney.

  8. Dearest Helen,
    We probably all have a Doppelgänger and I love the use of this perfect German word for it!
    With all our travels we have so often met someones exact Doppelgänger and it would be magical for being able to bring them together...
    Hugs,
    Mariette
