Ellen McNeal
Poet
When I write my poetry, I go for the image, always the snap shot or the photograph, the one thing, that will force the reality of what Iím seeing into words.

Driving through downtown, and seeing Columbus with a bird on his had, I felt I had the perfect image. Since I used to work on Montgomery Street, at the Metropolitan School of the Arts, I often spent time at Columbus Circle.

To me, Columbus Circle is the center of the arts community, with the Civic Center, the museums, the old Metropolitan School of the Arts, and the library emanating from that center. And I like the symbolism of Columbus: the patrons of the arts, the ones who go to arts projects downtown, seeing horizons in the arts.

Crow's nest, horizon
