My friend, let’s not think of tomorrow,
but let’s enjoy this fleeting moment of life.
We are only beginning to learn what to
say in a photograph. The world is a
succession of fleeting moments, any
one of which might say
The creative act lasts but a brief moment,
a lightening instant of give-and-take, just
long enough for you to level the camera
and to trap the fleeting prey
in your little box.
To photograph is to hold one’s breath,
when all faculties converge to capture
fleeting reality. It’s as that precise
moment that mastering an image
becomes a great physical
and intellectual joy.
A moment in time
Captured in our heart and mind
Memory so dear
A fleeting moment
Can live with us forever
A fond memory
I didn’t have time to capture new images for this week’s photo challenge so I went into my photo library, which was a lovely experience of remembering many beautiful, fleeting moments of my life. And, the topic inspired me to write haiku. I am grateful for the creative people who work so diligently at Word Press.
