Photographic Memories

So many moments
I have failed to immortalize
Because my outlook
Tends to run bleak
Seems unfair
I should bust out the chisel
When moments refuse
To make sense
Because sometimes
Stars do align

I remember a winter scene
On a river
And the golden eagle
Floating above our naked winter
Hot spring soak
Recall howling wolves
Outside our tent door
While we trembled in ecstasy

Then there was
The leaping bobcat
And Sally's backseat
The adrenaline rush
And throbbing after pulse
Of a mountain goat stampede
And who would believe
But you

You were there
In the only memories
I seem to shake loose
Like I can't remember any
Moments before
