A poem relating to photography

Through Gods eyes

A photograph could be just that

An image of the all incumbent nature of sense and emotion

Pasted together by colour and light

A woman’s smile

A Veteran’s wrinkles

A child playing

A funeral

A tree

Behind the lens lies a potent instrument a master’s eye much more vigilant

It manipulates the palate and its artificial friend

To draw the truth by it’s reluctant thread to the other end

The Sadness within happiness

The long journey towards maturity

The young soul’s vulnerability

The farewell to flesh

The vessel of time

A photograph could be just that

Pasted in a book to fade and grow older

Forgotten forever

Or something more mysterious and bolder


An exhibition in the gallery of the Beholder
