Poem and Photography by Cheryl Elich-Krumpelt

Walking back from a Bears Game in Chicago. The  fans seemed confused by the loss of their beloved team. The sculpture acted as a place to reflect and loose ones self along the way….

-SAMENESS-

Polluted

populated

pandemonium

pacing

people

from here to everywhere

no corner to hide

the traffic

of chaos leaves less

than trails

but that of a path

of confusion

floor boards vibrate the songs

of moderate souls

“which way and That” the song repeats

and limbs keep tracking , line after line

lacking perforation for hope

of air

breathing in with each step

exhaling desperately to be recognized

in a crowd

of sameness.

By C.E.K. Nelson/Cheryl Elich-Krumpelt

 

Poem and Photography by Cheryl Elich-Krumpelt

A poem that speaks of the disillusionment of time and age and how there is a disconnect between generations….

The Coat of Time

Lost

in a space

where time has no value

as it has dissolved

into a pocket sized rectangle

of desirous users

consuming Time’s hands

to the finger tips

with a touch

on screen

that projects gratification

in Its’ immediate.

No cloak,

no matter how ferocious

can shield

the lack of discretion that

no time gives. For it does not

stand still,

nor does it

fly

by

a generation

who knows it not

but of a minute by minute progression

to an absolute end

of an age

less

time.

by Cheryl Elich-Krumpel

A day to remember those who fought and are still fighting for our freedom to choose, to have a voice, to live as we wish …to be American!! Thank you to all the veterans and their families for making such great sacrifices in order for us to be free!!!
