Fly On A Photographer’s Wall

Another peek into the photographs of persons and their relationships:

Fly On A Photographer's Wall
by Michael Doyle

Photographs so perfectly still
Are a marvel that makes us feel
All these candid moments captured well
Soul numbing as they tell their tale

Forever healthy and always happy
Crowded in the doings of family
Unable to be captured without inspiration
Unable to be found in forced duplication

Always present, camera at a ready
Life comes at us relentlessly steady
All the right moments taken in their measure
Each of these remembered as our treasure

Whether you capture a smile or a cry
There's no point in pretending to deny
All of life's feelings caught in their emotion
Are as sacred as our heart's true devotion

Body language brings its honesty
Without a word, we touch on divinity
No suffering fool could be more plain
Then to hope to bring a smile from disdain

Floating by like a fly on the wall
The unseen guest filters through it all
Watching it as it begins to unfold
Letting the story be just as it is told

Little slice of life quietly reveal
And then the photograph captures it in still
The mechanics of each photograph
Whispers the cue of whether to cry or laugh

Paid off in leading lines and windowed eyes
That draw us in framed with no surprise
Splashed of color explode in perfected space
All waiting for the camera's embrace
