Photographer at heart
Was almost ready to depart,
I’d gathered the supplies.

Cameras, film, and a backpack,
Going old school,ย memories taking me back,
Traveling to the airport, almost makes me cry.

Going to many exotic places,
Where I’ll see many faces –
That is all well and good,

But I do not want to explore,
I want to be home more,
In my own neighborhood!

Is that really so bad?
That right now, traveling makes me sad?
That in pajamas I want to stay?

And crash on the sofa and vent,
Especially during this event,
Trying to write a novel in only thirty days!


The Days Before Cameras Went Digital

I think a bit and I do barely remember
When a photographโ€™s life first originated
On a thing called thirty-five millimeter,
And that seemingly forever one hour we waited

After handing over the prized roll of film to a clerk
Just to find out if any of the photos at all
Came out acceptable or if we wasted the energy we exerted.
Ah, the days before cameras went digitalโ€ฆ

Now we get results right after the shutterโ€™s click.
The days of film seem to be long past.
Technology has progressed tick by tick,
But alas, the precious memories are to last.

Captured Moment To-Go

Take a simplistic photo, a captured moment to-go

An instant copied to film instead of pixels, for when minds want memory refills

Printed recollections on paper, saved for viewing again later!
