Poet's Notes about The Poem

This style of Gogyohka (5-LinePoetry) is my favorite.
Gogyohka is a new form of poetry which has been developed in Japan. Gogyohka simply means verse which is written in five lines, but each line generally represents one phrase and has a different feel to five-line verse commonly found in Western poetry.
Well, this poem is what i felt in earthquake of the 3.11.
This idea came from Pound.
The origin of the poetry of Pound is that it comes from the heart rebellion to the modern culture of Western all, for the purpose of Social bourgeois sentimentality
, it will regain the poetry of real meaning, it was an attempt a variety of ways. He shows, that by would consolidate most purely a thing called poetry at one point just called 'Imeji', at the forefront of the movement to bring back the 'art' from the modern poetry, there is a starting point only one there I was set to do so. Modern heal so to speak, it is, so to speak, was the antidote.

    Thank you for sharing, great food for thought! I also thought that we will regain the connection of human souls with the natural world after the 3.11. A shift of consciousness seemed to have almost taken place but it was not enough I guess... There are times when birth starts with destruction. So I am not losing hope. Still have a plenty of trust in the humanity of open hearts...One day we will manage to connect to each other to become in tandem with the Universe. (Report) Reply
