Crossed Thresholds

(From the Community Caregiving Journal 3-word prompts Ring, Blur, Tune.)

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.

Photos: a mushroom "fairy ring" in our neighborhood; fog at the community park where I sometimes take respite breaks; my Flemish lap harp.
