The meadow comes alive inside my mind
Through the view finder, the landscape blurs
into shape and color. The computer screen,
my honest companion, shows me the picture
I actually took. My unblind eye is a stubborn thing.
Refuses to look through the view finder. Or
perhaps the nearly blind eye is insistent.
Its dominance reigns supreme.
Like my eye, I am persistent.
Using my honest companion,
I create the meadow I saw inside my mind.
