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.
A Fountain of Youth
In wonder I gaze long at photographs which
Poised in the truest elements of time
Capture the essence, the purity
Of life in momentary surrender
Remember the days of childhood laughter
When all would seem right and the world stood still
Our focus sequentially time lapsed and framed
In shades of black on white testimonial
In the heat of summer, hazy days at the pool
Sun showers splatter, cool and cleansing
Relief in a balmy fragrance of renewal
Quenching as chilled water, satiating
As droplets dancing a torrent in bathing
Shimmering stardust, a fountain of youth
And whimsical chatter of little ones playing
In bounty of nature’s sustenance waiting
How fond I remain for days gone by
When simpler times allowed us the freedom
To run, to patter in carefree abandon
Awash in the midst of teaming showers
Delights of the seasons, storm clouds gloaming
A child could be a child to grow in leisure
Precious moments come and gone forever
