Daily Prompt: Tables Turned

July 6, 2013

Are as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one? Being written about, as well as writing?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DISCOMFORT.



A touch on steel

A flash of light

Blink of a shutter

A captured sight

I feel aliveness

Through my veins

Making memories

Of all the lanes

I’ve walked; A lack

Of a thing breeds

A shine, a knack

For appreciating it –

Thus my love

For a camera

(And fear of

Being on the other

End of it;

I won’t have it,

Not a bit.)

I’d always rather

Save forever pure beauty

Than be immortalized

Through sense of duty.
