Evolving Vivian Maier

Vivian walked a tighter path than she would have believed. For one with anonymity she would be deceived. A public figure she was not. Her life spent between images. And when at home it wasn't hers that landlords brought her scrimmages. Her photos now celebrities. though many now are dead. That fame for the photographer; in death she may have led. She opened up a world of art. The pictures thousand words. To leave us with as many thoughts, she scattered with the birds. Her wealth was an illusion of a life seen through a shutter. To ending on a bench meant; an ending poor in clutter. A death that she took nothing of and left as unfulfilled. While dying brought her everything evolving in her guild. To live on Vivian Maier how you're time's been shared in fate. You're talent has enriched us all. You're life's a second take.
