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 . . . )
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).

vase, trees, tea, hint at the whole
