I forgot my camera!

is my camera an excuse?

I notice the bright red tip of the bud
in a cluster of rosebay rhododendron,
and my photographer eye and finger imagines photos
in search of revelations of beauty and rightness,

and then I remember I forgot to bring my camera--
in the bustle and lists for this trip
it didn’t make it up with us,

I hope I won’t need the camera this trip
as an excuse to hold the moments dear.
