Ozu

Mainly I avoid ekphrastic poetry (poetry in response to art) and here both my first two poems posted after my revamp are, but simply to follow that film theme (I think these my only two film influenced poems so far, though I’ve been tempted several other times).

(after seeing Late Spring)

empty shots move me
vase, trees, tea, hint at the whole
he knows, apple peeled

    Reblogged this on a blind catch in the sun and commented:

    I’m experimenting with reblogging some of the poems on my blog in ways other than just highlighting them in my ‘herbaceous border of poems’, as there are hundreds here now that are mostly just sitting quietly singing to themselves.

    Ozu was one of the first I posted when i started blogging regularly. It was inspired by watching Ozu’s great film Late Spring. I hope you enjoy it . . .

    (apologies when i used ‘press this’ it didn’t link to the post for some reason, so a second go . . . )
