loving eyes

a photograph
is a miracle &
a blessing––

a sacred
instant in time
that
radiates light
forever

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
sets––

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 &
glows

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

a bottomless lake
reflects an endless
sky

so the eyes speak
to the heart
& the brain can
hear

we learn
to love life
by sharing
