Still not Still

moon and road, Lakelands, Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada
A high country road
I stop beside a lake
Find a place which centers the moon
Wait for the headlights on the shore

Click open
Wait (tick tick tick)
Twenty seconds wait
Click closed

I watch the universe
In subtle motion
While my camera freezes time

Each exposure
The moon slides
A little further
Across the sky

Headlights round
A distant corner
On a glassy lake

Each exposure
A meditative breath of art

In the quiet darkness
The camera records
With every capture
A still night
So far from still

Moon and Lake
