Photos: Snow Lady seen in Cambridge, MA, in the 1980s; my neighbor's holiday lights, with Venus at upper right; squirrel in a palm tree at a neighborhood housing complex (hat added).

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.
