Gogyohka-Friday [53]


I'm sorry, very sorry.

You're shocked, I'm very sure.

But no one's more horrified than I

for forgetting this poem

for the first time in a year.

Oh, Father

how many times

must I fall

before I remember in You

I am free to fly?

Isaiah 40:29 [Dabbling with photo-editing]

 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Gogyohka-Thursday [51]

This is a poem I wrote in May, 2008 which was published a year later in a magazine in Japan. It's less concrete than my average Gogyohka- I wrote it contemplating someone dear to me who was leaving my life. Somehow, it seems to fit today- so here it is, for you!

sitting here

thinking of you


and trying

to forget

Gogyohka-Thursday [50]

And then came the day 

when Marilyn learned

she could still hear the world

through her headphones.

Her life as a recluse was wrecked forever.

Gogyohka-Thursday [49]

I go

merrily singing

and skipping

and twirling

around the college campus.

For pity's sake people, smile!
