Excerpt:

Persistence of Vision

The soul gets lost when you try to still time.
Modern technology can’t do the moment justice.
Some things are only meant for the eyes to receive.

The memory serves as the best recorder.
It’s a broad canvas that establishes the scenes,
in proper emotional perspective.

Pictures, moving and still have their place.
They coax the memory, which has been buried in time,
to awaken and recall every movement and sound,
and smell and emotion, so the soul can be stirred
and the heart can be moved by the image once more.

Still, an image won’t fit in a frame.
Some things are only meant for the eyes.
