Tanka T039

It is cool to be
A little mysterious –
To have some mystique –
There is nothing cool about
Being fully understood

Notes to this poem…

If someone were fully understood, there’d be nothing interesting to think or talk about them. They make sense and those aren’t the interesting things in life. We are explorers by nature so if there were nothing to explore about someone cause you understand all you need to or care for about them, it’s time to move on!

The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
