Verse First ~ Half & Half

The camera sits in his hand,
as it shuts its eye on the wonders
that surround his vicinity

There stands the girl,
standing there like a work of art
it shuts its eye on the beauty

There stands the photographer
looking at her picture wondering
when he'll catch her sight again.

  2. I can see them both - and love that the camera "shuts its eye" on the beauty - to capture it. Cool.

  3. Sure you are a camera-maniac. I can feel it in this poem. I loved reading it. A very vivid image drawn of the scene. I could see it as if in a photograph. :)

  5. "if he'll catch her sight again" has a great double meaning -- he could catch her looking at him / catch sight of her. Which made me very happy!

  7. So simple, yet so complex. You identify an essential human experience. So nicely done.

  9. So glad you posted to Poets United so I could find you! The camera shutting its eye in order to capture the moment, whereas we must keep our eyes open... There is a sense of the moment in this, as well as a reminder that we must not BE the camera, lest we lose our real sight - and insight. Lovely. Amy
