“The time has come, one and all, for that saddest of days— it is my regret to once more say to you all that this is the final One Shoot Sunday. We have such a treat for you on the auspicious day, though, for it’s my pleasure to give to you the marvelous Rosie Hardy. Hardy has an amazing talent for people—from weddings, to children, to model events; but many of you music fans might recognize her work as well. Then 19-year-old Hardy provided the cover shot for Maroon 5′s album, Hands All Over (she also happened to be the model featured in the shot). She’s also done work for Samsung and Penguin Book Publishers, among many others. This young star of the photographic world was kind enough to take the time to interview with One Stop Poetry, and it’s my pleasure to offer her work and her words for our last feature here.
Final Picture Prompt Challenge!
Why are you there?
Living in my mind’s eye?
Your touch is Heaven and Hell at the same moment
Your voice is the whisper of Death.
I am a puppet wanting a heart.
You are the puppeteer.
You make me dance.
I believe I am free.
Then the play is over and you put me in my box.
Cold and empty and dead.
