Imagination…

IMAGINATION: Sunflower 01

What If You Slept

What if you slept

And what if

In your sleep

You dreamed

And what if

In your dream

You went to heaven

And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower

And what if

When you awoke

You had that flower in you hand

Ah, what then?

SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE (1772-1834)

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, as he so beautifully illustrated in this poem, believed in the power of imagination.

As an artist, the first step in creation is always imagination. To bring a concept or visualization into reality is truly a gift shared by all of humanity.

Take a moment to read the poem again. Then sit back, relax, and ask yourself, “Ah, what then?”

For me my photograph, “Imagination: Sunflower 01”, is a symbol of imagination. This unusual flower with its beautiful colors, shapes and textures is evidence of an imagination far greater than mine.

Prints are available here.
