Supple Cord ~ Naomi Shihab Nye

My brother, in his small white bed,
held one end,
I tugged the other
to signal I was still awake.
We could have spoken,
could have sung
to one another,

we were in the same room
for five years,
but the soft cord
with its little frayed ends
connected us
in the dark,

gave comfort
even if we had been bickering
all day.

When he fell asleep first
and his end of the cord
dropped to the floor,
I missed him terribly,
though I could hear
his even breath

About the Photographer

Istvan Kerekes

In His Own Words

I have been a photographer since 2007. My favourite subject is The Man. I would like to show the souls behind the faces. Everyone has feelings, everybody loves and breathes. My subjects are usually ordinary people. My main aim is to show their personalities through my images. One of William Albert Allard’s thoughts on photos and photography is just like mine, I truly believe in it: “the good portrait is about the eye, the look, since the human soul is reflected in it the most purely.”When taking photos it is my heart that leads me. After I have tuned to the subject I act instinctively.
