Instamatic Camera


We met
in a dream~
two strangers
sitting on a couch
waiting together
while I fixed
an old camera
to pass the time.
The tiny screws
almost fell through
the cracks of my fingers
until you rescued them,
cupping your hands
under mine.
So I watched you
put together the
minuscule workings,
so patiently
and, it was
in that moment
that I loved you,
and in that moment
you turned to me
and said,
''you are beautiful''
and I thought,
''the beauty he sees,
is a reflection of
what I'm seeing in him,
in this moment''.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
