Gogyohka-Sneakers-500

Photos: Chairs lined up outside a neighborhood beauty salon whose floor was being waxed; our Astroscan telescope, set up on our back porch; my partner modeling the sneakers she has cut up. The last two photos have been distorted through several filters.

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.

If you like what you see here, please consider purchasing a copy of the ebook Caregiving In Five Lines. Every penny from sales benefits Caregiving.com. (Thanks!)
