Mother… #Gogyohka #5Line


Immense display of love and care,

Pure and ever fresh as rain water,

No barter of favors required,

No conditions being kept forward,

That’s “Mother” for you.

Notes –

Gogyohka: 

Gogyohka (pronounced in four syllables with all hard g’s, as in “good”) literally translates as “five-line verse”. It is an evolution of the great Japanese tradition of short verse, but unlike its predecessors Haiku and Tanka, it has no fixed syllable pattern. There are also no conventions governing content and no assumptions about what is considered to be appropriately “poetic” language.
