Here is a poem about Photography

Stupid

We make universal scratches in the sand
The common language off sight
Looking, observing, seeing, exposing, recording

An act of reaching out to touch eternity
We freeze our emotions in moments
An expression of the scream, the howl
The song of our existence.

We see eternity
every time we walk out into the dark
disappearing into a clear night sky

We see eternity
in the shadow we cast on a bright full summers day
Morning noon and night

We see eternity
in a drop of water
flowing down a wet glass pain

We record our shuddering thoughts
standing, lying, sleeping, drenched
Yes drenched in eternities breath

These small scratches are just saying
‘Hello, I’m here’
‘Are you here?’
Do you see and feel the same as me?

From a snap of your favourite meal, shoe, child, sunset
To the wildest expression of your deepest fantasy
It is not about the picture but the person

Both the one that takes 
and the one that receives.
Joining ourselves with the oneness of creation
So to our eternities 

Yes it’s just about people…..
Us, we, all
Hey, there is no them
There is only us

Who knows…..

Who knows what my photographs are about?
I do know sometimes what they are about for me.
Sometimes I discover later……

Which is ‘Why’?
Why is our human planet in such a mess

Still

why is there so much hunger, hate, separation, 
argument, disagreement ,unfairness

Injustice

Remember ‘though shalt not’
the ‘turning of the cheek’
the ‘eye of the needle’
the ‘meek shall inherit’

I do not need to finish any of these
for you know what they are.
Why don’t the religions practice what they preach.

Why is humanity so stupid.

( Please note; This poem was derived from the introduction Hag gave to Cambridge Camera Club in March 2018 to the Video of his work followed by a talk about his work)
