evening, Lent day seven

 my fourth zoom of the day
begins this evening, in just a moment
zoom, zoom

I think of the Mazda ads
"zoom zoom"
whispers the boy
I once had a Mazda sports car
and drove faster

I think of my camera lens
zoom zoom
my brain tells me
as I look through the viewfinder
and focus closer

zoom zoom
faster on the roads of life or
closer to study the life around us
this is the endless question asked

this Lent calls me to the lens 
and not the Mazda
to savor the slower road of examination
all the details that make you you
and me me
and the intersections 
where Jesus blurs
the yellow lines of division
zoom zoom
