Photos: The Big Dipper (also called the Plough), photographed from my driveway; my father's watch; "Food Building Number Three" postcard from the 1939 New York World's Fair, which my mother had attended.

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, you inspire thought and creativity EJ. I just love you ability to bring verse and photography together. It is something to look forward to every week.
