In this, a continuing series, I am honored 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. 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.
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.
Our waking hours, subconscious sleep
Dimensional toil of discovery
Our reach extending to outer limits
Of union, purpose, salient being
Axial agents of passage touching
As soulful connection, lifeblood flowing
We astound in presence of visual
Moments umbilical, intermittent
Delicate tenderness touching, sublime
A messenger’s vehicle, heart and soul
We inhale the essence of earthly living
Through limbs of humanity unfurling
As newborn release and separation
From the womb a lifeline liberated
Eyes cast on the beauty, surrendering
As petiole agents of conveyance
Our inmost staple a reason for being
A pathway enlightened, forever seeing
