Poetry in motion
Into the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture the landscape has changed and so the means of transportation. Before the modern motorized vehicle becomes available horse has been what the lifeline of locals depended upon. The horses might have seen their best day during the height of ancient Tea-Horse Trade, even today, horse is still highly demanded for transportation and load-carrying in many routes that modern highway is not available. Horse is still common to see in the great west of China.
Arabian says best that “The horse is God’s gift to mankind.”, true, but I would rather see the horse as poetry in motion.
