A continuation of my previous post, Visual Poems: A Breath for Eye, Mind & Soul — here are some of my latest creations which combine photography, art & poetry.
Her footsteps echoed among shelves covered in dust,
rows of pages colored with age but alive,
stories she needed to breathe.
She lay in a red rose garden amongst thistle & brier,
fingers resting in hues of gold lion’s fur,
lost in fanciful dreams.
Ribbons of light dance beside windswept pages,
pen scrawling poems as the sky changes color,
dreams falling onto pages like leaves
in the September Sun.
She cries porcelain tears,
painting her face with sadness,
waiting for him to fill her empty heart
with a sky full of rainbow stars.
In the stillness of night my shadow extends,
soul tattered & worn, a skeleton of a woman
etched in the silver tranquility of the moon.
She dreamt of him under cherry blossoms,
salty sea wind in her hair,
eyes full of moonlight,
teardrops falling on crimson rose.

Thank you for reading! These short poems and beautiful images reflect some of the things I love most — nature, fairy tales, dreams & books. There are endless stories out there, if only we look & listen for them. Have a wonderful week–with moments to read, listen & dream. -Stacie
