The Darkroom

by Robert Lloyd Jaffe

Playing in the darkroom,
I stand in front
of the enlarger.
Looking like an illuminated alter,
and me, kneeling before it--
a devout believer.
The cool light comes down,
through the negative,
reflects off the easel,
and presses its gentle hand
on my heart.

Robert Lloyd Jaffe's picture

I am an observer and listener of the music of life. Where I find cadence, I find my interest and passion directed. It can be sound, light, smell, or purely an experience of thought. The sky, the sea, the mountains, and the machines that allow me to explore those places draw my attention, and give me serenity.
