Peace comes with abundance as summer skies
Gnarled in a patchwork quilt of downy
Cloud as it lingers ‘fore Heaven takes it away
In silent, unspoken, disconsolate weary
Shadows cast dapple on landscapes forlorn
In sadness of cast away, decomposed
The clutter of wind driven free-fall, deserted
Time lapse down memory lane, reminiscent
Solitude of Sundays bring my return
To this place amid the pine trees weeping
Their needles rain down upon oldfangled
Decay of a bygone era sleeping
Tireless motorcar mildewed, peeling
A solitary confinement of neglect
Albeit in beauty, artistic rendering
And I crouch in its presence, awaiting
Lingering in the greatest anticipation
For a whisper from past in resonating
Deserted, the languish of reckless abandon
Bathed in the potable rains in coming
STUNNING VISUALS IN VERSE
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.
