Artist's torments

Snapper-shooter's in high seas,
Catching images of fishes,
Picture-taker's in mind's peace,
Lingering over his features,

Camera's resting in desk's cabinet,
Value diminishingly depreciated,
Tripod retired to under the bed,
Its legs collapsed and head slightly fainted,

Memory stick getting stuck to its socket,
Semiconductors conducting the glue,
Flash faded out like money in pocket,
Turning red eyes to original blue.

But with the March turning into the April
Let that nightmare be gone and away,
Give the photographer mind's inspiration,
And make the Moon-like* be model again!
