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.



Words dancing in luminescent splendor

Bold, yet so gentle as fireflies bring

Mystic undertones of feather down dreams

Brilliant in the whisper of darkness sing

In a breeze of contentment it would seem

Our thoughts would succumb as night’s surrender

As limbs in unfurled moonlight serenade

Sway in the romance of summertime winds

Breathtaking in its vacuous tender

Orchestral pleasantries, sleeping rescind

Our eyes gaze in longing, thoughts remember

Unspoken voice on a pillow cascade
