hope / New York Times / poetry / Poetry Pairings

What Would Your Snapshot Be?

I’m a fan of The New York Time’s “Poetry Pairing” series. This past week, Emily Dickinson’s “Hope is the thing with feathers” was paired up with reader-submitted photographs as a “visual time capsule” of sorts. A creative and admirable pairing, I think.

What photo would you offer for this pairing?

Mine is a photograph of my Godchild Penelope creating her “mini-art” over the weekend. For me, she is a perfect pairing of hope and art in many senses of both words.
