Photo poems

I've created several of these myself, without realizing that is what I was doing. A picture inspires a poem, or a poem links itself in my mind to a photo. I didn't realize there were so many people doing the same thing, and that it had a name--actually two names: photopoem or picturepoem. I expect there are other ways such poetry/photography combinations are referred to, but these two make the most sense to me.

First 50, the writing prompt blog, posted the first one on this list. that intrigued me, and I searched for more. Here are a few good ones:

A Day by Emily Dickinson (the one I found at First50. Thanks, Deb!)

The Evening is My Book by Rainer Maria Rilke.

Two not so well-known, but intriguing poets:

Morning Earth Daily Poems by John Caddy.

Wilderness Stones by Bruce and Mary Sue Rosenberger.

I love Rainer Maria Rilke. I put up myself some poems at my photo blog (see older posts from 2007 and 2006)
