snow in fields newly
green share dandelion profusion
glow yet sun melts away
cowslips gather ice.

Gogyohka Poetic Form
- This poetic form was conceived by Enta Kusakabe. Gogyohka means “five-line poem” in Japanese. It’s related to the tanka form.
- This form was developed during the mid-twentieth century.
- The Gogyohka has very simple rules: The poem is comprised of five lines with one phrase per line.
Thank you Enta Kusakabe
