by John Ecko
This poem was one of the most challenging calligrams to date for me.
I was fascinated by the beauty of love found in so many different written languages of the world and was inspired by the Japanese expression for it. Though there is so much diversity out there, Love is still the universal language and hope of mankind.
I hope you enjoy this visual poem from my new book "Signs of Life" and please feel free to visit my visual poetry site at http://eckovision.wordpress.com/ to see more of my work and to find out more about my book.
Thank you for listening to my words and seeing a little of what I see.
