Poetic Images


You do as I command,

Mindfulness to compose, complete.

I can see shadows and highlights --

A gift from the sun.

Beams blast through tree limbs, dying leaves.

What would Ansel tell me to do next?

As I hold you in my hands,

I remember footing,

And elbows to be pulled inward

To secure my balance.

You beg me to make my next frame.

I see the world through your shuttering eye.

You never let me down.

You always promise one of many,

Worthy of praise.

With dials and buttons and switches,

I embrace you like an old and trusted friend.

So, that's pretty much what I'm about these days.  Photography.  Poetry.  Photography and poetry.  Sometimes, bringing the two together.   It is my hope to capture images and write poetry that will inspire poetic images for all to experience.

I am a retired elementary school teacher living in Milford, Ohio, USA.
