Poem: "Through the Lens of a Camera"

"Through the Lens of a Camera"

The infinite becomes intimate:

The twisted trunk of a tree
Hints at a dryad dancing.

A dragonfly zooms in
To land on a red petal.

A dandelion head offers
Not three wishes, but three hundred.

When our ancestors
First melted sand into glass,
Who knew it would come to this?

The photographer
Captures images with crystal,
Like amber embracing insects –
But in an instant, not in millennia.
