A huge thank you to the Walloon Writers Review for publishing my poem “Depth of Field” and two photographs!
Depth of Field
Murmurous voices float across the frozen lake,
confusing my solitude, echoing my ineptitude.
My camera becomes my eyes in the dark.
Momentarily exposed, I am Selene
in flashes of silver and white.
The lullaby of a great horned owl
filters through the cold night air.
The wolf moon slides up
a pulsing vein of darkened sky.
My camera captures its journey.
I imagine you watching me
as you once did, my camera
capturing the space between us.
If only I had understood the photographs:
You were always looking elsewhere
under my constant watch.
