Italian Sonnet

One of five: Pictures

Rome, 2003 | 35mm film photo by author

Once upon a time in Rome
while gazing at Bernini
I snapped a photo meant for home,
with tourist senses reeling.

The moment froze for me in time
as sweet as a gelato
“take nothing but the light you find”
has always been my motto
