A Photographer

A Photographer short poem

Photo by VinothChandar

A photographer captures a mystery,
Of an unheard allegory,
One that is deep and subaqueous,
has memories engraved and precious.

He collects beautiful images,
reflecting candid moments & stages,
unfolding a legendary lineage,
captivating one’s mind’s envisage!

It is at times a lovely portrait,
Of someone with a beautiful trait,
or a memory that unfolds,
dearer to the heart it enfolds.
It’s nature’s beauty or fury,
captured by beholder on a spree.
Beyond visual and verbal veil,
lie the stages of photographic trail.

He clicks & clicks a camera flash,
the perfect shot stored in a cache.
the pictures gets awes and applause,
the photographer can never pause,
genius in the shadows makes no flaws.

He Interprets and feels the light,
reflects visual intimacies of sight.
when reality camouflages in limelight.
Applaud the skilled hands and eye of a photographer,
he can visualize and capture images we can remember,
memories that imprint our hearts forever!!

A photograph is a whisper, Of an untold story, One that is deeper, Than just an emotion. It is a beautiful mirror, Reflecting candid moments, With a unique wistfulness, That captivates your heart. It is sometimes a lovely portrait, Of
