Photo Portrait

Whilst looking at a photo portrait
Why does the watch sound amplify?
The need to deny
It's testament to mortality?
It's duality
Between past and present
Clots of memory we can't defy.

In photos I hear peals of thunder
As at a summer picnic, dark clouds bedeck
Blue skies in check
The future we can't deny
Passed shy
Of what inevitably will be
Clouds' shadow we can't defy.

Our portraits of the past all are
The thread of now; that we design
And try to deny;
Or accept the marching moon
That soon
Eclipses sun and earth
Clods strewn we can't defy.
