WORN OUT

John-Ward Leighton CD: Worn Out
Photo ©Copyright 2012 by John-Ward Leighton CD
in the street the other day
cameras poised
even the flowers seemed boring
my hunters eye saw nothing worth capturing
a couple alighted from a limo
the bride was beautiful
and the groom was handsome
but in my mind
I had no need
to photograph Barbie and Ken
on their wedding day
and after a day
of having my phone quit
and my computers act up
I wasn’t up
to
practicing my craft on yet another gadget
a woman and a man passed me on the street
striding to who knows where
the woman’s hair caught my attention
and saved the day
that was not quite
as I supposed
worn out.
