I am delighted to share my poem, Photographs, is published at Visual Verse!
Visual Verse curates an online monthly anthology of poetry and prose written in response to its unique monthly image. It is no secret I love ekphrastic prompts and I greatly enjoyed writing Photographs!
Photographs are memories. In a time where we hold onto and treasure our beginnings and loved ones, photographs are stories.
Old photo albums and scrapbooks are a treasure to look at; tribute to a time when fading visuals were the only way to keep in touch with the faces of loved ones far away or tap into their courage and hope. I find sepia photographs somewhat grotesque and always raw.
Photographs testify to the diversity of people and places, and to individuality. Be unique in your voice. Be a ‘photograph’ in writing and in vision so original that whoever looks at you cannot steal your story because it is full of you.
Many people share the same message but only you will present it your way.
I invite you to enjoy Photographs and let go of the ways you wish to be someone else.
