Technology Fail!

Technology Fail!

We all have those moments when we fail.  Later on we see the funny side of the experience.  What I saw in the night light was truly beautiful.  But it remains only in the memory.   Our cultural compulsion to capture the rapture was unfulfilled.   Perhaps I was being taught to savour the moment and to not focus on recording it for posterity.  I’ve attached the dodgy photos for the ‘cringe factor’.

Technology Fail!

On a recent rainy night,

A glow of vibrant orange streetlight

Shone

Through

The leafy canopy

Of a rain-soaked tree.

Vision

Strained through

The dropping drizzle,

Beheld

The amber-esque event.

Exquisite moment

In the night light.

Like any haplessly compulsive modern:

Have smartphone

Will have pic!

But

Alas,

Technology fail.

The photo was…

A blur of mist.

So

I convey

A moment in memory

No longer for display.
