156. Life, A Fine Camera Shot

Life, a fine camera shot
Be clear with what to shoot
Only one chance you got
Clean lens first from dirt, soot

Stay in your present moment
Have patience at heart
Be subject near or distant
Check the view in every part

Be flexible to change position
For the perfect snap
Lose yourself by captivation
Let the moment enwrap

Be aware of the truth in real
Though picture be beautiful
To keep trying, the ideal
It is only your eyes, be mindful

Check for the light
Adjust zoom, focus for detail
Hold camera tight
Catch the moment without fail

There is no shortcut or guile
To photograph, a refined art
A struggle, to live with smile
With no ending and no start

Life, a fine camera shot
To be one with real, the goal
Learn from this lesson taught
Take the picture as a whole

138. Nature’s Voice in Man

Wish, a fluttering bee
Flying miles in life’s garden
To be by flowers, roam free
Make honey sweet, golden

Will, a butterfly of pattern
Trying to break free
From a dark cocoon, yearn
For a ray of light to see

Motive, a determined ant
Moving on and on
On ways, straight or slant
To achieve, it is born

Patience, a quiet turtle
Hard on the outside
To life’s rough battle
A shelter own, to hide

Courage, a tiger firm
Going for the kill
Making others squirm
Command with skill

Focus, a horse of muscle
Taking strides long
Speeding to goal with a bustle
Untiring till its swansong

Nature, an expression
Of unfelt inner qualities
To captivate attention
See life among wild trees
