Gogyohka, (pronounced go-gee-yoh–kuh), was created by Enta Kusakabe in Japan. It is a “five-line poem” or “song” with no no fixed syllable pattern. It can be written on any subject and use of ordinary, simple language is encouraged.
This mystical faerie poem was inspired by, Derrick Knights intriguing “Hedgerow Fairies” article from his site on May 21st …https://derrickjknight.com/2020/05/21/hedgerow-fairies/ …. and a big thank you to Derrick for granting me permission to use his lovely “Fairy” photos here…..
The Faeries Of Fry’s Lane
Walking down Fry’s Lane
Sheltering from the misty rain
I did spy among the hedgerow berries
A frollick of mystical faeries
Like iridescent glowing canaries
A fluttering of night-time luminaries
Trying not to disturb their magical home
I quietly asked them, “Are you all alone”
The faeries laughed and danced
They replied, “Your vision is by perchance
and your dreams may turn to stone
if you wish for a golden throne”
Suddenly the glittering sands of time
Illuminating the faeries wings of rhyme
Begun jumping off the falling star
And the faeries quickly flew back to their green Avatar

Dear readers, over the previous 8 days, I hope you have been enjoying my poems about my wonderful trip to New York, Philadelphia and Bensalem, from a year ago. … Meeting my dear niece Kerri was a dream come, and this is the poem I wrote for her…..
Love United, Under Distant Skies (For Kerri)
Through the mist of my tears
I saw droplets run down her cheeks
Our moist eyes met
And I kissed her on the lips
With love, from my softened soul
I felt the depth of her inner strength
Radiate from within her petite body.
Now, finally we have embraced
And encountered our forever dreams
The bells of respect clearly chimed
Ringing joyful tunes, and our duets were living proof
That our hearts were lovingly entwined
Under alien stars, and united by our distant skies
