(From the Community Caregiving Journal 3-word prompts Doubt, Remind, Couch.)

I was inspired to do photo-poems by Bob’s (@rainbow) beautiful work. The ones shown here use a relatively new poetic form called the Gogyohka. Invented in 1957 by Japanese poet Enta Kusakabe, the Gogyohka is verse written in five lines. You can read more about the form here.

    Hi–I wish I could say one is my favorite. But, they each say something in a way that makes me them all a favorite. Simply beautiful.
