dressed in our finest
we smile for the camera
I look away

Did you look away or or purpose? I'd loved your family pictures last year. Nice poem.

I look away...Yes I relate to and can visualize the intent and the picture in process. I appreciate your work...often as much for what is not said as what is said. I hope there is clarity there for my intent

The looking away is not literal but metaphorical.

Thanks, T and Linda for the compliments. I love writing poetry and feel like my best work is done where I don't say things so baldly, but where it is implied. Writing haiku has reinforced that for me.
