To Capture - Poem by Lyn Paul

Yesterday was each photograph
The memories we see tomorrow
Those memories can take us so far back
With Joy and sometimes sorrow

In the simplest of ways, Materials never mattered
Footloose and fancy free
In Those Tech No free days where at times
I wish I could still be

So no one is without that camera To Capture that incredible moment
Selfies, Social Media, can be sent all over our world
Now today, so very different, No one is with out a phone
They can witness criminal activity and be woken with any ring tone

Treasure every snap shot
Send them to those whom you adore
Make a musical presentation
Yet nothing against the law

So Anyone can be a photographer
Anyone can tell a story
To Capture something so fantastic
And be praised with so much glory

The snapshots held I have captured
Are such fond memories........
Children, landscape
Picturesque blue seas

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This elephant has a large enclosure and is treated so well.
After watching a documentary recently perhaps we should be thankful for our Zoo's. Also he has much more room than it looks.
