To Ms. Beth Castillo, for her May 30th Wedding Day

Your feet are the utter frailty
Things sensible and sensing
Try to unfasten them; they’re fashioned after flight:
Prodigious wings to carry dreams aloft

Your eyes are mundane
Since you see things sensibly
But watch sunrise and sunset photographs differently:
Countless and old and dark and strong and sad

Your chests rise and fall
It doesn’t make sense at all
The heavy collision of your seasons:
As age goes, in love, no secret can tarnish Beauty

Your mind wanders
Nostalgia knows beyond all senses
Say goodbye to trivial contemplations:
Out of your tough highway, without walking

Forget your utter feet,
Live the miraculous life, and
Just fly with those dreams.

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. -- Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) English photographer

I said it once, and I'll say it again, passion, just passion in your remarkable pieces of work. Thanks for a great read.
