Inspiration can be found wherever you look. Here is a case in point.
This provocative shot is one of many ground compositions Marie Elena’s daughter, Deanna Marie, has photographed. None of Deanna’s photos are “staged.” She simply frames what she sees on the ground, and takes the photograph.
What does this photo say to you? What memory does it stir? What mood does it illicit? Is there music in its composition? Or, is there a thought it provokes? Survey what the eye sees, and write where it carries you.
Marie Elena’s attempt:
she walks the path assigned her
Walt’s effort :
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
Decay in increments; comes alive.
When seen through a poet’s eyes
something lies beneath the surface.
Crusted flakes of paint appear
as the fragrant petals of rebirth
when written in metered verse.
