A Rose Is Only Until - Poem by Michael Shepherd

hold the camera
as the rose's petals
fall
one by
one
until.

backwards
film
the
run
Now

a minor miracle
of memory
in two dimensions
once three.

you.
I.

who
holds
t he camera
now?

    What a great idea in construct, Michael. And as I look backward at those who were in my camera's eye, I really understand this one.
