Clouds: love poems from above the fray has been a four-decade project, containing poems and photos influenced by travel to five continents – witnessing beautiful vistas in towns, cities, and above all, in nature. Thousands of the resulting photos are now contained in Meyer’s archive.
Over seven hundred five-line quintain poems were written down, from which sixty-four were paired with these photos for Clouds. The style evolved into “short, post attention span poetry,” ie. quintains (five-line poems) that illustrate the inner and outer states of our environment. Opposite the poems, Meyer noted the adventure of finding the visual image.
