Between Our Eyes

Hi. Don't tinker with that screen

where your eyes have been.

Not sure you follow? Notice how many stops

and crossings I have taken you. You

have come this far. I like you

just being here.

 

I wish you can see me

from a superzoom's viewpoint.

Don't take for granted visual limits

or find yourself crossing to the blurred.

I tweak the control buttons to see

your smiles, round eyes,

and long, eye lashes. Then, I snap.

 

Viewers would later notice

how you enjoyed my attention,

how pretty you were from their screens,

wishing with their own cameras,

snap that way.

 

Don't worry. I won't disclose

the secret we keep between our eyes.

 

* I've been swamped with work lately and this is the only output I can come up, writing about my interest in the new technology available in digital SLR cameras, especially, with the Four-Thirds and Micro Four-Thirds technology announcements recently.

Joel,

 

Nice to see you. We have missed you, and it's a relief to read that you have simply been busy with work. Hope everything is otherwise ok.

 

Again, you have skillfully tied together technology and the primal, in this case, love. I especially like this part --

Viewers would later notice

how you enjoyed my attention,

how pretty you were from their screens,

wishing with their own cameras,

snap that way.

As always, I enjoyed the contemporary feel.

Thank you, Tony. No, I did not abandon PMO. It's just the season of so much work. I will be more active soon.

I don't have my creative juices flowing. But, I plan to turn this poem around when I have the time. Soon :-)

While that was certainly a concern, Joel, I had noticed your absence on PC, also. I'm glad you're back, and that you're otherwise alright.

 

I always enjoy your poems. Thank you for sharing them here.
