Caught unaware on the camera… A picture of mine

I encased a picture of mine, old and yet not so,

within the flourishing shades and hues of dark,

and brightened my presence, to be coalescing

with the background, of winding waters of sea,

to let people contemplate me, of yesterday,

those whose eyes never locate me today,

.

an entity forgot, I am a background myself

and thus what they see, is what they get from me,

a smile that was never to be, never turning up

on my oblivious face, gazing away from lens,

through which the light of me, sneaked inside

the mechanical coils of the camera, and

.

unbeknownst, the shutter closed… tchk-ek …

I swim, flow in ivory blue gale of that juncture,

I add without any regard, without discerning

if it is there in me, the light which fled from

my serenading meditation over distant lands,

and dyed with my shadows, an impression of mine

.

Much of it is based on my new Gravatar. This is a slightly formatted version of a photograph clicked unbeknownst to me; from a little far away through zooming by my sister.

  1. its funny….some cultures believe pictures capture a bit of our soul…they capture us in a moment of time…but what do they really say of us…beyond that moment…a vague impression of us

  2. i like those snapshots when you’re unaware and not expecting it best cause you act naturally then and i think it captures a bit more of who we really are than a photo that you can prepare for
