One Shoot Sunday and Anchor What–Purple Profundity: Poetry by Elisabeth Connelley

Sunday Photography Interview: Neil Alexander and Poetry Challenge
Photographer Neil Alexander is a lifestyle and travel photographer as skilled at capturing the essence of people, as well as the landscapes they walk. Based in Manchester (soggy Manchester, as his twitter is quick to note), Alexander’s work has nevertheless carried him far–as far east as Indochina, and in the next year, west into the United States. Yet this professional also takes it a step further – not only does he do what he loves, but he blogs about it too.

Time for the Picture Prompt Challenge!

Anchor What?

Anchor
What
Would you do without me?

Leaning upon
Your moorings
Catching the canvas of the sun
Feeding light
Convection
Into the soil

Illumination
Flight across the walls
Spilling over
Rushing
Along grass
Electric green

Kissing your feet
Sizzling your soul
Giggling your creases
Showing what is
Line and form

Rushing back up to join the sky
Skipping
Spiral dance

Anchor
What
Would you do without me?

  2. Interesting the speaker makes a value inquiry to an inanimate object, and the way those sections breaks down with “what” on its own line lends to additional interpretations. Also effective that first stanza repeats at end.
