Life comes down to 
moments frozen in motion
perfections caught in pictures 
like trophies hanging on the walls
of the rooms of our lives
often just framed illusions 
memories temporarily autographed
on the windswept sand
on the beaches we run to
trying to capture
what  cannot be held
desperately seeking 
that which refuses to be
what it cannot be
truths are always the truth
and the reflection in the mirror
lies only to the beholder
