It is what it is

Capturing those interior moments,
I get that there are shadows
but must they loom so large and dark?

Get out the cropping tool,
tidy it up,
build a perfect square for maximum impact on the page...

But no, each piece I try to crop --
the dark shadows on the left,
the inconsistent patch of light below,
the blankness of the wall above --
each contributes a steadiness and balance
to make the image whole.

Darkness, blankness, inconsistency --
all serve to build a perfect frame;
accentuate the light within.
