A Thousand Words Unspoken- Photography and poem

Update- changed poem from “to contempt to from contempt”

A Thousand words not spoken.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Images can speak volumes for those who can not speak for themselves and it is the photographers/artists job to recognize these instances and document them no matter how painful or risky. Experiencing these scenes made my stomach turn and I was angered… angry at the human that allowed this to happen…angry at myself for being feeling so helpless. And after awhile I thought more about it and realized that the horses weren’t the only victims, the human who caused this is a victim as well. I am sure that this person loved the animals but something must have happened in the person’s life to have caused such travesty-but what I saw was pain. Pain that unfortunately carried over to innocent animals. Please rest assured that I am looking into this situation… it is our duty to identify and help as best we all can in this crazy world!!! God bless!!!!!

A Thousand Words Not Spoken

No Sound
from exhaling breath
heard only by lens
and depth
of perception
the image that speaks
for the unspoken
a thousand words
engraved
across a visual
captured
the heart
where daggers pierce the soul
and unkempt, unfinished fiery break
covenants
broken by broken beings
a mess of things untangled
and manifest like parasites
on to the obedient
crying out
from voiceless space.
The thousand words are not enough
to lull the master
from contempt
as drums in heaven
announce the sins of neglect. -CEK Nelson(Cheryl elich-krumpelt) copyright 2015 Cheryl elich-krumpelt
