The dust will settle, by MelissaEvery so often, you meet an artist who takes your breath away. Sometimes, you meet another artist who really makes you think. Then there are artists who can portray emotions deeply...The dust will settle, by Melissa by Observer14
And then, you meet one of those rare artists who pull all of those things together.
Melissa ( melannc ) is one of those artists. This particular photograph is one of my favorites out of what she has posted here. She's an artist both in front of the lens and behind it, as she has been doing more of her own photography recently.
This particular poem took me some time -- I had the first line stuck in my head for a couple of weeks before I set aside the time to let the rest of the poem bubble to the surface:
walk softly through the silent halls
in the dimly remembered dust of distant times,
at tagged walls --
marks left behind;

|She walks into the frame like she owns the place |
and proceeds to take possession of her audience
she is no child, but youth still clings to her
it does not want to let go
it embraces her like a lover
she is a woman, and she is
comfortable in her skin
confident in her gaze
secure in her knowledge
and she awakens things in you
