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.

Night Falls Serene

Collaborative Pairings by Don MacIver and Carolyn Meltzer ©2015


Dusk settles, a gentle sobriety

In veiled obscurity, days drifting by

Its waning moments sinewy whispers

Recoiling transparencies darkened

Drawn upon flesh in remnant smolder

As waves o’er the sands’ awaiting morrow

Veiled upon dreams of anticipation

Night falls in the grace of serenity

Silkscreen ligature, dreams beholden

Ominous whims of soloist cantor

In darkness of smoldering candles fragrant

Cimmerian shades of twilight gloaming

Curiosity charmed my dreams’ intending

As midnight, silken, beckoned surrender
