Aperture Settings


Checking results later on
I saw only the dogs in focus
And sometimes just one.  It
Was then too early to achieve
More.  I had to open the aperture
Wide enough for the little
Light that dawn let creep

Over the mountain – walking
On as we did until I wanted
To try again to see if I could
Step it down from four to five
Point six or more as the
Morning wore away or when
Something was in the way

Say a coyote coming from
Some distance, who knows why,
To lie in our path – there was
No time to step down further
Rushing ahead lest
He capture Duffy
Prior to seven point one.
