Photos and poetry 2 – I am Completely Different

.

I love both photography and poetry so from time-to-time I am going to combine them ( often rather loosely as in this case ! ) which I hope you’ll enjoy.

You can see the first in the Photos and Poetry series here

I believe that poetry is best read aloud so do give it a try.

I Am Completely Different

I am completely different.
Though I am wearing the same tie as yesterday,
am as poor as yesterday,
as good for nothing as yesterday,
today
I am completely different.
Though I am wearing the same clothes,
am as drunk as yesterday,
living as clumsily as yesterday, nevertheless
today
I am completely different.

Ah …
I patiently close my eyes
on all the grins and smirks
on all the twisted smiles and horse laughs—
and glimpse then, inside me
one beautiful white butterfly
fluttering towards tomorrow.

~ Kuroda Saburo ~

If you’d like to you can read my other blog 1500 Saturdays here  where I write about what I’m thinking, talking about, photographing or doing on all the Saturdays I hope I’ll have left!

  1. A lovely poem. The picture is so good. I like the sinous movement of the bar as a contrast to the straightness of the others.
