These are three different Gogyohka, written on three different topics. This is my first attempt at writing any strict form of poetry. Hope you guys enjoy it.

{On dreams not materializing}

I held her steadily
Hoping to see
Her colors fly
Not knowing
She’d fade before her flight.

{On poverty and hunger}

It’s always a parody
To see bright eyes
Wanting to be the change
When other eyes shut
Murmuring a prayer.

{On the earthquake in Japan}

They sat chatting
As the sun went down
Oblivious to the tremble
That would shake all composure
But a prayer for a Sun much brighter.
