Staring at the capture that isn't anymore
Seeing the picture all over again
It was yesterday and his face was a full vase of white blooms
It will be tomorrow and a fissure is showing its teeth.

It's amazing how time--even a small amount of it--can change our perspective though it seems to change the image.

I love it when a poem inspires me, and send me to the dictionary at the same time --- words are so wonderful!

"staring at the capture that isn't anymore"

That really made me stop and contemplate--which is quite a feat for me on this lazy morning!
