Holding still

Photographs economize the truth; they are always moments more or less illusorily abducted from time’s continuum
Sally Mann Quoted from the blog  Brain Pickings

 

While we confront  yellow sandstone
And colorful headgears in snake coil

We hold still as if we hold an oil lamp
Through  darkness of the unfamiliar.

Lamp sits before us with warm bread
That brightens up a dark inner palate

And its yellow light colors the dance-
A girl dance swirls in yellow moment.

We hold still to avoid a camera shake
And memory superimposition on girl.

The drum tries to catch the liquid girl
To be lamp-lit pearl- drop under leaf

Night sheds in the winter of our time,
Leaf slowly falling its yellow moment.

We hold still shaking camera of night
From shaking body, to catch moment.
