Somewhere between F-stops and

Wide angles, his wife walked away.

She left him alone to ponder how

To bring the world into his view-

Finder, adjusting his lens cleanly

Pointing at a spot not too far away

Nor so near as to be out of focus or

Beyond his range, or out of the frame.

The camera, once heavy, as he lugged it

On his neck, felt like the lightness of new

Prospects, vistas, all yet unexplored as

He set his sites, aimed, and pulled the trigger.
