Hushed Tones

(From the Community Caregiving Journal 3-word prompts Balloon, Broke, Recycle.)




Photos: Dragon mural in Chinatown in Montréal, Canada; broken marble outside our local art center during renovations; a road in our neighborhood closed for storm drain repairs.

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 from the Caregiving in Five Lines series. Every penny from sales benefits (Thanks!)
