touches the stately cornfield

This technique is called narrowing focus. Here’s the inspiration.

in the moonlight
Wisteria flowers look fragile –
a gust of wind

Is this “narrowing focus”? I think so. I will try to explain it. “In the moonlight”, far away, high up in the sky; “Wisteria flowers look fragile”, down to earth; “a gust of wind”, that’s very close to the body if you can feel that.


A rainy day
Quickly falls the night–
Silk-tree blossoms

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
