Wave Break

once in a long time,
the wave you tried
      to photograph

is exactly right
   as your mind
   saw it, is there
in the camera.

   frozen, mid-air,
stopped and you
   see everything

as it was, and
      you want to
shout, really
      really loud.

   did i mention,
      it doesn't 
happen often?


      the horizon 
clearly curves,
   downwards
   at the ends,
 
      when you get
   high enough
         you see it.

   sometimes we
need to see things
   from a little
      higher up,
 
      than our 
usual position 
to see things 
      as they
really are.
