Camera This

Camera This

I need to camera these moments
Save them somewhere in my memory
I need to camera these moments
Album them in my heart to keep them from
Negativing into ghosts of themselves

I need to camera these moments
Lens them into focus until I can’t forget

  1. Oh sure, go ahead; write a few outstanding lines and then close the poem with a couplet that shakes the earth, totally stunning the reader and filling him the irresistible urge to read the whole thing 3-4 more times.
    Go ahead, I dare you.
    Oh. Wait.
    Never mind.

  2. Your poem really spoke to me, Candy, as I too love to camera! I especially love ‘Album them in my heart to keep them from / Negativing into ghosts of themselves’ – I have a whole stack of photos to album, and a lovely album to put them in. My favourite like: ‘Lens them into focus until I can’t forget’.
