In this book, you will find a variety of different forms: ballad, tanka-sequence, tanka prose, cinquain and free verse. The author uses tanka-sequence to write many characters such as: "a composer,” “a pianist and a piano,” "a street artist," "a window washer," "a chef," “an EMT,” “a roofer," “a teacher,” “subway violinist’s hunger” and etc. In addition, he wrote some nostalgic poems. (You can read his poems “Old Buddy Chang," and "I Miss Your Voice," and a tanka sequence “a pianist and a piano” by clicking on the link below: http://www.nourish.com/ruth-poems). In a way, these poems may belong to the category of “anyone who has the ability to read can understand his poetry.” This was the “philosophy” of Langston Hughes and Ogden Nash, two of the most popular poets. Regardless where they stand in the eyes of established literati, it seems more people read their poems than of any other poets in America.
