We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen..

2 Corinthians 4: 18

This was not easy when you can't see yourself in a self portrait to shoot only half of one's own face..and I did several that did not turn out. Nevertheless, it was a blast and I hope this one works, at least half way:)

All you see
Is half of me
The other side
You do not find..
It hides behind..
The apple tree.
Poetry by me, AJP
