One of the most fundamental means to enhance poetry’s reader experience is through the pairing of stunning photographic images in a union of compelling and inspired perceptions that only the individual reader can fully embrace.
In this, a continuing series, I am honoured and excited to share a collaborative undertaking with gifted Atlanta, Georgia photographer Carolyn C. Meltzer titled ‘Stunning Visuals In Verse’ pairing my own original written verse through the inspiration of Carolyn’s striking photographic images.
Discover Carolyn’s extraordinary gift for capturing breathtaking visuals of life and the remarkable beauty of our natural surroundings. I truly felt compelled to present her breathtaking images alongside my poetic verse in a unified representation of creative arts endeavor embracing the extraordinary elements of nature that touch our heart, mind and soul.
To my readers I implore that you visit the website of Carolyn C. Meltzer, linked beneath the accompanying photo or by clicking the image itself, to explore and experience the beauty and wonderment of her subjects through an accomplished camera lens. Share in the emotions and spirit of creative and artistic collaboration through visuals in verse.
Care for and protect our natural environment…our very existence depends on it.


Caterwaul of ocean’s mist bid calling
Undulant repetitions redolent
As calming and fragrant water colors
Churn upon shores in the slumber of days
Aloft crags of earthen splendor rising
In awakening tones seal pups banter
As mother lay in resplendent slighting
Submerged, her dreams seeming far and away

Guttural their bark, illusive, subtle
In bays of contentment as gulls would cry
Echoing hollowed on wind-driven shores
Where tree limbs sway to a blustering gale
Whispering softly as souls in passage
Imparting their spirit yet looming nigh
As prayer on the wings of summer seasons
A hymnal abeyance on weary skies
