loving eyes

a photograph
is a miracle &
a blessing––

a sacred
instant in time
radiates light

the eyes
of the photographer
are educated by
the heart
to know the truth
of beauty

what is beautiful?

the sun waiting
on a hillside
before it

sacred swans
extending their necks
to drink in
a celestial lake––

visible stars
sweeping through
a silhouette of branches
as human activity
buzzes in streams of light
along the ground––

the man in the moon
watches &

within the frame
of a photograph
every home on
earth can take its place
in eternity––

a bottomless lake
reflects an endless

so the eyes speak
to the heart
& the brain can

we learn
to love life
by sharing
