A beautiful landscape
Changing every second
A cool crisp fall, which may seem like just another fall day
Yet, she’ll only see this exact image once in her life
She’ll take a picture, it’ll last longer

Does she have the camera?
Camera, check.
Turning it on
Bringing it up to her face
Making sure she can see out of the eyehole


Powering on

Lens extending like the hair swirling around her finger

Staring onto the beautiful landscape

Focusing

Shooting

Check the picture,
Or make it a surprise?
She’ll save it for later.
She’ll take another just incase
Here they go again


Lens extending

Staring onto the beautiful landscape

Focusing

Shooting

Done.

She walks away
Leaving it as a memory,
Captured on film,
Never forgotten
Done, until they meet again.
