Need I Fear

Need I fear your words
hot as coals
Need I fear your eyes
sharp as arrows

dark as caves
Need I fear your reasoning
heavy as rocks

Armed with a fur of wisdom
Finds edges to glide between
foxes rushing down in hunger
in these round furs of snow

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
