Family. 21st Century Love Poem


You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. you need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even wait, just learn to become quiet , still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka was a writer and a poet - he had the words… those beautiful, beautiful words. To paraphrase Lewis Hine, my words don’t come - so I take pictures. I wanted to compose a poem though, a Love Poem, and I decided I would do this with photographs. I took Franz up on his advice and didn’t leave the house, I waited quietly and patiently to gather my pictorial words to form the stanzas of my visual poem.
