See what we mean in Spring…




I’ve hunted with camera in many a spring rain
Seen oodles of pleasure in life… and rivers of pain
Focused on creatures… including the very small
Lived with plants and animals, loving them all

This movement liked to shoot diminutive creatures really up-close
And smiled when a spider’s lens did perfectly expose
Realized that nothing fully conveys life via a digital screen
Words are mere symbolic shadows, if you see what i mean

  1. You walk tall and carry a big camera Tom…shoot to get a killer photo! πŸ˜€ That’s what I call “Packin'” Mr. Cameraman!!! Happy Spring and Happy National Poetry Month!


  2. Hunting with a camera is the best thing. πŸ™‚
    You really do get up close and personal with your little subjects. Excellent shot. πŸ™‚


  3. I enjoyed that poem Tom and the photo is interesting … you see an ant crawling along a sidewalk, or on your picnic table (Heaven forbid) and everyone recognizes that ant, but up close, it no more resembles an ant than I do. Not black and legs looks all bent and look at the long antennas. And ants are already out and about? It says 2018 for the photo, so I guess so. After the long Winter/cold Spring we’ve had, just watch it get really hot and unbearable in record time.
