Poem Gift

Written by a new friend and gifted to me on Christmas. What a special treat!

'Light Painting'

Your eye is
the camera.

Your heart is
the lens.

Your mind is the
Look out for the light
that sliver of time,
that fragile crystalline moment
that will reveal
a hidden dimension.
Turn a photo into portraits. Into art.

Reveal something new
like an explorer’s first map
of an unknown country.
First steps. First dawns. First light.
Showing what
was previously unknown.

Pull back layers to reveal
something about them and perhaps
more importantly,
about yourself.

So keep telling their stories.
Keep painting, with light.
