Love Resides Here

Looking back upon times when, lovestruck favored

your gaze deep in my eyes, my center of being

and there, in your fashion, feelings flirting

stirred heart sounds as song notes resonating

Touched by a serenade of waltzing cellos

as strings’ vibrato in courtship romance

undulating whispers, our hearts consumed

a heated exchange, divine serenity

Passion flows through our veins in wanton desire

tingling, the excite of lips deserving

the magical fancy of a kiss, its linger

and time, precious moments standing still

First love resides so deeply within

it lives and breathes in teardrops falling

two hearts’ transparency of knowing

divine in the courtship of love again

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 reading 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.

      1. Thank you so much for your kind support, Lauren. My sincere apologies for being so very late in responding. My emails began to pile up on me while I was drawn to endless care search options and website updates etc. My priorities have been unavoidably shifted in recent months. I remain optimistic that better days are ahead! You take good care too. I see that you have been posting and I will most certainly read them soon.

  1. Hi there Don, only just back from travels in Scandanavia… First love captured succinctly here with your usual finesse and depth of feeling – something that stirs precious memories in us all – thank yu for that, my friend and hope life is blossoming for you these days… Regards Scott


    1. Hi, Scott! As always, thank you so much for your most kind and deeply thoughtful comment. This piece has been well-received here and elsewhere, a popular theme and one I have not written on enough in recent times. Life circumstances will influence what I write and when; now felt like the right time to reconnect with those things close to heart.

      Scandinavia, my gosh how wonderful that travel must have been! My best to you.
