.Dedicated to Bukurie


She is every blessed woman

holding two lenses

one for exteriors in motion

one for interiors to be known

not bound by black and white

nor by the color

of random, backdrop lights


She is every blessed woman

who takes notice

while you forget to see yourself

as art embracing limb and tongue

she clicks to save the moment

in kind refusal of apathy

to embrace all forms of expression

in the act of living


She is every blessed woman

that is tender to diversity,

joy and sorrow,

abstract and concrete,

offering her womb

to be impregnated by vision.

In labor’s darkroom

she gives birth to perspective

blanketing the frame

and celebrating life’s infancy

with the world
