Poetry and Photography (Two Photographs)

There is a reason why poetry and photography go together. Illustrated poems have a long history but there is something different about an illustration that depicts the poem and a photograph that gives rise to it. While photographs should speak for themselves and tell their own story (e.g. have impact) we can still read many things into them and it’s those ideas the poet can articulate quite separately from the photo. If we want our images to have specific impact, poetry is certainly one of the ways of voicing this. As to the photographs here, I believe them to be an Eastern Phoebe.
