Wow, suzette, this was amazing and unique! This is what they mean by "the less words the better"!!! The imagery is awesome too, especially in black and white, which is always so dramatic.

Faith: It is so good to get your positive comments on this. I didn't know how it would be received. I started writing a poem about dreams turning black and white and suddenly I thought well there is nothing much to say so I went with it. Thanks so much for your input as it is most appreciated.
Yea, Faith. I see you are using your new avatar. Love it!

Yes, lol, I will switch it out from time-to-time with the old one. My eyes are actually hazel and not brown, but I know it was hard to tell from my photo I sent. He has gone off "trekking" for three weeks, so maybe after, he can adjust :)
You're right about the black and white, as that is all there is . . . it speaks for itself!
It is colorful too.
God bless, Faith Reaper

Faith: I didn't focus on the eyes in the picture but I'd be a little bummed out if my eye color was changed too. Eyes are so expressive and the windows of the soul, so I'd want them the right color too. Thanks for the visit.

Seriously, the concept of this poem without actual words is truly fascinating! The use of black and white images seem almost ethereal. Great job! Take care. (Voted up)

suzette - Very compelling and powerful. There really is something about black and white photographs ... they have nuance and suggestibility and atmosphere. I am so glad you did this, but I am also surprised that the HP hasn't pulled this -- I didn't know we could do hubs that were 80-90% images. Really, really intense atmosphere you have created. Sharing. Theresa

Wow!....very creative, it packs a hell of a punch. I love the black and white images, they really give a different perspective.

Theresa: Thank you so much for reading and viewing this. Why would HP pull this? We do photo essays that are 80-90% images and sometimes 100% images. This is a legitimate way of expressing an idea poetically. A photo is worth a 1000 words. It was something different and I wanted to try it. I was more concerned by how my audience would receive it more than how HP would receive it. Thank you for your comments and they are most appreciated.

rose-the planner: Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate your input and your reading and viewing this. The reason was to portray a vacuum or void and the best way to do that for me was they way I wrote it. Thank you!

You are right suzette. I guess over the months I have gotten so many warnings from HP about this that, and the other .... while my hubs were under construction -- I somehow got the idea that they frowned on too many pictures. I was just confused apparently -- which actually happens fairly often. :) I have been consciously trying to limit my pictures all this time, when I didn't even have to. Oh well, live and learn. :) This is a great photographic poem. I really do like it. Theresa

Thanks Theresa. I just tried something totally different. I thought they liked lots of photos in our hubs as I use quite a few even in written articles of mine. The new template they have going now has quite a few photos in it. I can't believe you got warnings while hubs were under construction - that hasn't happened to me .... yet! lol One never knows what the HP gods are thinking. I have always enjoyed your hubs, especially the photos you include. so I don't know why HP is frowning. Anyway, you are a terrific writer and that's ultimately what counts here. Thanks so much for the visit.

A world where everything is either black or white. I like that, all those shades of grey can be confusing. Rather than 'A Song without Words' it's a Poem without words, or nearly so, and truly a beautiful, creative idea.

Hi Blossom: Well, I wanted to somehow indicate a void or a vacuum, and that is why I wrote it the way I did. I have never done anything like this before and I truly had no idea how it would be received. So far, the comments have been good. I doubt though that this will become my poetric 'style'. Thanks so much for reading and viewing this. Your comments are most appreciated.

Eddy: Thank you so much for your comments about my poetic experiment turned poem. lol I appreciate your input very much. As I started to write this I thought instead of describing a void or vacuum with words why not actually have it in my poem. So that is how this evolved. Thanks for the vote and share. Most appreciated. You have a great weekend too.

Interesting poem. It causes one to ponder awhile. I love the photos. I think you just made the new record of the less words for a published hub.

suzzycue: I tried something different with this poem. I know, it's a whole two lines and nothing in between, but I was trying to make a point. Thank you so much for reading this. I appreciate your comments.
