Eternityís Picture

The subject in a photograph remains
(it could be you, but weíll just say itís me)
the same, unmoved, unaltered by the gains
or pains of passing years; eternity
encased inside a four-by-six inch frame.

Itís funny how it works: The shutter clicks
and as we were we are; with none to blame
but we ourselves, and little chance to fix
that crooked smile, or tilted head, or eye
caught partly closed that makes you look like dumb
and dumber rolled up into one. Deny
we could, but evidence will reign for years to come.

Beware, for as we are, we all will be;
for when the shutter clicks: Eternity.

"Beware, for as we are, we all will be; for when the shutter clicks: Eternity."
This is the first time I have ever seen a poem written using the illulstration of a camera lens and a photo to capture the truth of what eternity will hold for us upon departure from this earth. Thanks so much for sharing.
