The photographer
Has the best eye
When the subject
Is the object
Of affection.
The angle is just right
The timing just perfect
Only when emotions
Make the click.
The different faces
Of the same person
Are all equally true,
And all the shades captured,
Seem to make the world tick.
Years and depth
Marking wisdom on the face,
Worries of the world
And human conflict,
Marking those fine lines
Of empathy and pain.
Or even that smile
Of kind endearment
Speaks a thousand words,
A persona captured,
The world within.
A click made with feelings,
On a camera held with deep longing.
