Arousal in the Whisper of Dawn
Through hauntingly silent darkness stir bulbous hangings
in sinewy graces of bowing and salacious slumber
Gentle breezes caress their filament garments as
whispers of awakening dawn conspire to
nudge their tranquility, blush upon fronds
They stir ever so gently, as sleeping ballerina
an inkling of first light subtle, beckoning
Lazy daze a minor miracle, awkward, unfolding
Sweet nectar is the nurture of morning’s dew as
droplets linger hidden, absorbed beneath folds
A thirst for renewal of energy’s hiding in the midst
of stems upon listless stupor; slowly in rising a beauty unfolds
as limbs come unburdened, a dancer in awakening’s sigh
Surround’s early clamber, announces morning, the
brook in its babble, a silent tree fallen
An infancy sprouting, the night slips away
Birds chirrup their slightly muted undertones as
sunup brings an aura and moonlight fading
Budding splendor as a ballerina poised, subdued in
moments of daybreak calling

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.
