The Photograph by Bradley Thomas

In a bowl of Victorian design 
Black cherries overflow its rim 
Spilling across the table on a paisley table cloth 
Highlighted in a low light atmosphere 

A moment created for a renaissance feel 
A reversal of perception of time 
The illusion of a placid history 
Through the medium of a precision image 

Planned, choreographed, and presented 
To ease the mind through the eyes 
An invitation to imbibe 
In a work of the ethereal 

Through a trust of its spirit 
To look at old ideas 
And entertain a few concepts 
Of a new future
