Deceiving Eyes


He appears at peace

Buried, he seems asleep

Can one be free

Embedded in Earth’s shroud

Does one just wither like leaves

Leaving an imprint in time

Our eyes envision reality

The sun will set — and

Change the setting on the lens takes a look at the photography of Mary Frances who takes pictures of things that are not there.  This is one of her photos.

    Nice last two lines about changing the setting on the lens when the sun sets.


  5. This is really deep with questions… what happens afterwards, and will that imprint last?

    Though we wither away, I like to hope we leave our imprints behind a trace of who we were.
