a perfect picture
a picture perfect
worth a thousand words

what can a picture say
that cannot be captured
with syllables pulled
from within a soul

a more subtle camera

I snap my shots
a tattoo in my eye
my parchment
catching the light

the perfect angle

metaphors to show
a delicious turn of phrase
what feelings you get
from the sound of my words

a perfect picture
a picture perfect
worth a thousand words?

David Moore

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' said Alice. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the cat. 'We're all mad here.'

Hey Dave,
Well done my friend!

Your writing truly is a 'more subtle camera.'

Very creative Dave!
LOVE this Dave...very creative indeed!

A poet really IS a camera man...either revealing his own feelings and thoughts, or capturing those of others.

Really enjoyed this one!

Thanking 3
Thank you all. I really like this one, which is rare for me as I tend to think that most of my writing is crap! :D We are our own worse critics after all. Your kind words mean more to me than you will ever know, bless you!

Much Love,

picture perfect
I love great camera work, but I love great literary pictures more. You've had the ability from the first thing I read from you to make the scene dance and come to life in the view finder of my eyes. Once again your words paint perfectly the picture uniquely(m.sp.) individual to the reader. As always tickled pink and a little green with envy.
