NIKKI GIOVANNI -PHOTOGRAPHY

nikki-giovanni

the eye we are told

is a camera

but the film is the heart

not the brain

and our hands joining

those that reach

develop the product

it’s easy sitting in the sun

to forget that cold exists

let alone envelops

the lives of people

it’s easy sitting in the sun

to forget the ice and ravages

of winter yet

there are those who would have

no other season

it’s always easy when thinking

we have the best to assume

others covet it

yet surf or sea each has

its lovers and its meaning

for love

watching the red sun bleed

into the ocean

one thinks of the beauty that fire brings

if the eye is a camera and the film is the heart

then the photo assistant is god
