life is similar sometimes
to an old photograph
blurred at the edges and
slightly out of focus
sections faded or misty
people caught in frame
looking,
ever
still
a few scattered surprises
that
weren't seen coming
when the shutter clicked
wildly guessing at exposure
and focus
inspired by light
and shadows that spread
in
many shades of grey
creating contrast,
experience
making the photo produced
exactly what it is
accepting
of it's reality
but lessons learned
to see more clearly
for
future opportunities
along life's way

  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.
