Director's Eye:  Gettysburg

This field alive in the lens, did it aim
to be aimed at, a witness bright in green fire
that doesn't burn it?  And the flower,
bottom left, blue as the name

this field no longer holds, did it mean
to gather in as an afterthought,
immortal by accident in the shot
none heard who fired it?  Is this a scene

about color or not?  Maybe some cotton
should fit in the frame, widen the angle
a bit, tell more story if we're able—

the blue bled into green and forgotten
in how colorful a camera makes be,
how it contains how it sets free.
