A photographer captures essence, substance, and texture
With an artist’s eye.
We gasp our breath and wonder why
We didn’t see it like this!
There’s so much beauty to miss
If we don’t crop out the boring distractions
With a lens which highlights only the attractions!
Frame the picture with surroundings that highlight
The image we want to project.
Center it or leave it askew to delight
The imagination and tease the senses
With unique balance and no defects.
It is perfect…
It calls out to all of us who neglect
The image and fill the page with words instead.
The photographer and poet with inner reflection
View art from a different perspective.
The artist’s eye and the wordsmith’s ear
Coming together to create
What many eyes never see
And many ears do not hear.
It is not from neglect.
It is a difference of expression.
It is perfection!

Still waiting for some medical test results, but my plan is to stay in touch with all my friends in the meantime. Have a wonderful, healthy, and wealthy 2016! Let there be peace on earth …

The rays of sun and reflection
Create splashes of color selected
By the hands of gods and goddesses
That no artist with brushes
Could duplicate on canvas
In oils, pastels, or elements
Raw from the clay and earth and dried, crushed pigments
Art in words, sculpture, images pale in comparison
To the rays of sunlight blending in unison.
