Capturing The Moment — Past Shadows   Leave a comment

When viewing an image,
whether a photograph,
painting or a moment,
what I see is mine
and mine alone.

The resulting image 
is a product
of my experiences,
filtered through the cloth
of my culture. 

It is also a reflection
of my relationships
and the drive
to connect with
the world around me.

Each image
is captured
in my memory,

which will serve
to influence future images.

********

When looking at you
You look at me watching you,
Each viewed differently.

Nights spent together
Now are only memories
Lying next to you.

Cameras record
So that we will not forget,
Lessening burdens.

SELF-PORTRAIT
by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Hair which she still devoutly trusts is red.
Colorless eyes, employing
A childish wonder
To which they have no statistic
Title.
A large mouth,
Lascivious,
Aceticized by blasphemies.
A long throat,
Which will someday
Be strangled.
Thin arms,
In the summertime leopard
With freckles.
A small body,
Unexclamatory,
But which,
Were it the fashion to wear no clothes,
Would be as well-dressed
As any.

have his back.
