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.

    As usual I love the relevance of the poetry, but today I marvel at your photos. Simply beautiful, allowing us to “see” the beauty in common everyday objects. Thank you.
