Writers Block Challenge # 27


I wish I had a camera that could show the view from me:

Peripheral and everything I do and do not see.

And it would have to focus without zooming, and should stay

Attentive to the details and wide angles of each day.


Photographic memories!  I’ve heard some people have them.

Not me, though, only words are stored, retrievable at random.

I cannot tell you what I saw unless I first told me!

Word pictures I’ll remember.  That’s why I write poetry.

    heheheee… very lyrical.. I guess that's why they call it poetry.I thought this was a light hearted brush at the theme. A nice melody of words.
