the photo

though blurred
at the edges

as life exudes
its dreamlike quality

a photograph,
its fuzzy state
somehow reminiscent
of an inner quality…

remains a mystery…

as i sit and gaze
at the enygma that
you are…

the mystery that
remains, but

the fascination
that unfolds

and all
that remains
is the vision of
that blurry image

and the quiet
irony of “focusing”
my attention
on this fuzzy image.

late at night…

the irony is
in how the photo
clears my mind…

and i feel a sense
of easiness

a quiet sense of

glancing one more time
drifting into the warm blurriness
of familiar sleep
of gentle oblivion…
