Eclipse

"Eclipse" - 11/2/07

people always tell me
I never smile in pictures

"you have such a beautiful smile -
why don't you let someone capture it?"

capture my smile?

I think cameras should be used
to capture sadness, or at the very least

longing, so we don't forget every obstacle passes
smiles are faith's opening into the future

where happiness cannot be ruled
shining, unguarded

like the moon
