What did I see?

NaBloPoMo 2021

I see beauty profound

Fiery fall colors abound

The vista that induces rapture

I wish to permanently capture

So I try to take pictures from angles different

Make videos to preserve the moment

Even wax poetic about how I feel

The impact of the scenery on my senses I want to seal

*

The present I tucked away for future reminiscence

But in doing so I daresay I forgot to experience

The actual moment unfolding before my eyes

Now, just a few days later, I happen to realize

That I cannot recall details of that day

What the cool breeze smelled like, I cannot say

Whether my skin was warmed by the dappled sunlight

I do not know, I missed feeling that outright

Did I feel a sense of calm or tranquility

In the presence of breathtaking beauty?

Most of what I remember is based on the photographs I took

In seeing through my lens, with my eyes I forgot to look..
