Behind The Curtain

I want to observe you,

Uncomfortably long.

Beyond the physical

To the depths of your Song.


I look into you deeply,

No appearance, do I see.

It's the mirroring of God,

Reflecting you within me.


Your mind would race wildly,

Should I pursue this desire.

But we are all so beautiful

Why is it wrong to admire.


My intentions poetic

Versus primitive intent,

We're all brothers and sisters

Sent by the Omnipotent.


Unknowingly trapped

by our simple five senses,

We limit eye contact

and put up defenses.


I've this camera that sees you,

as perfect, no flaw.

Your spirit, your purpose

and your Maker, my awe.


Should we ever make contact,

In my eyes, please be certain,

Is profound admiration,

For the "I" behind the curtain.

Passionate for nature, life, writing and sharing, this site is mutually dedicated to my three favorite vehicles through life - Photography, Writing and Speaking. As professional photographer I was (and still am) in my favored "Observer" mode. As writer, these observations exposed a deeper understanding into ethics, authenticity and leadership. As speaker, I get to be selfish. In giving we gain - big! By helping you to discover your own authenticity, passion and where you too are a leader, I get a huge pang of fulfillment. Yes, I am a giver - the most selfish sort of person that ever was. (that is, once you realize how great the results of giving truly are)
