Jesus James Llorico hails from the beautiful province of Iloilo, Philippines. He was a former member of the Police Force in his hometown for a couple years and later on joined the Bureau of Fire Protection in the Visayas. He left Philippines for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where he worked for 22 years. Currently, he is connected with the Prince Sultan Airbase in Al Kharj. He is a regular contributor to the Panay News, and The Kabayan Weekly. Working abroad, away from his native land and loved ones, it is in writing poetry that Jesus finds comfort and forgets solitude. “Mirror” is a haiku about an actual mirror on the wall. In the darkness, when one is alone, the mirror returns to haunt. It is at once real and unreal, right and wrong. Mystery enshrouds the poem as the reader is caught in a labyrinth.
