Tanka T075

If you can’t write quotes
With wisdom like Confucius’ –
Then try to write quotes –
That look like Confucius might
Have actually written

Notes to this poem…

What I told myself before I took up calligraphy a few weeks ago. Of course, this is an “Anglicized” trash talk because I won’t be writing Chinese calligraphy quotes, not knowing Chinese (only one Chinese for writing). I’ll be writing my quotes in English. 🙂

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.
