photography
is in built
in born
scientifically
metaphorically
holistic
its a habit
once it enters
your bloodstream
you cannot kick
if you keep away
from the camera
for a long time
you fall sick
photographers
are born visionaries
some irrevocably
lovesick love
entraps them
accidentally
hitting their
head heart
soul with
a heavy brick
a cupids
poison arrow
that pricks
god save man
from crazy
women
demented
chicks spare
the photographer
spoil the stick
love is a candle
in the wind
burning at both
ends without
a wick..shoot
shoot click

dedicated to my friend randall ..my photography's measuring yardstick
