A Year of Poems – Day 349

Put away the cameras
Hide away the pen
Minimize the digital
The scene will soon begin.

Life is not a drama,
Not in the way you think,
It is the wind that whips your hair
And muffles the words you speak.

Life is in clammy fingers
Which slide against the palm
But you wouldn’t have it differently
Even if your heart was calm.

We do not need their sensors
To show how life should be
The eye takes better pictures
with no intermediary.

For life will fit no medium,
No poem can rock a crib,
It cannot quite be painted
I believe it can just be lived.
