Photos: Pattern made from repeated part of an Eastern Lubber Grasshopper in my yard; caboose at the head of the Withlacoochie State Trail in Inverness, FL; vacuum tubes from the Baldwin Orgasonic Electric Organ I grew up with.

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.
