Day 4 - Having to come up with something on the spur of the moment is like skiing - you never know what's around the corner or down the slope!

prompt: "Hold that ..."


Hold that camera steady!
Is your focus
clear and present
as the future will demand
of you, recorder and creator
of the past?

With three deaths in the past
month, you must arrange
words as a camera cannot,
leaving a picture imprinted
on every retina.
Great people died: parents,
community leaders, people
with big hearts whose lives
would make extraordinary

Your camera pans across
generations. Left or right
wing, it matters not. 
Their mark was made
and we the inheritors
live the futures 
they envisioned.
Hold that camera steady!
The memories depend on you.
