Hidden in Plain Sight


the world changes

when viewed through the lens

a ten-minute walk

turns into thirty

every step

reveals something formerly hidden

in plain sight

slow down

get close

adjust the focus

a brand new world

right under my nose

a perfect reflection

on the pond

the tiniest of leaves

bursting forth

the sun shining through

a stand of cedars

a bird scolding me

for getting too close

flowering trees

whose fragile beauty

lasts such a short time

even dried leaves

and diseased bark



my camera

my friend

we will go for another walk

very soon
