Naked Poetry Three – The Photo Plan

Michelangelo's Adam

Michelangelo’s Adam

Well, the research has yielded desired results for the poetry book yet to be written. The book begins with the creation of man who is naked, unconscious of his nakedness, and without shame. Not long after creation, he becomes wounded, and so begins his journey into consciousness, a journey that spans the life of every man though not every man dares to make the journey, choosing instead to remain as unconscious as possible.

With that journey told, a second journey needs to be followed, that of the journey of every woman as she moves from blind innocence into the fullness of her innate wisdom of life.  She leaves childhood to become a virginal woman, falls into love, has her eyes begin to see the truth of her lover, and then of herself.

The third journey is that of a couple, the journey from Romantic Love into stark reality and then into the realisation that we can be separate as individuals yet joined together as a king and queen in holiness.

Below is the photo plan that has been developed. I will be taking a number of photos while here in Mexico, the photos marked with an asterisk. I will open up the remaining photos for others to submit for inclusion in the book. I will choose the photos that best fit the theme. Age and physical conditioning are irrelevant for the most part as this is to be the story of every man and every woman and every couple – it is not about the perfect man, woman or couple. Photos submitted are not to be exhibitionist or lewd – natural images of nude and vulnerable and honest people only, please.
