Tanka T101

I’m going to be –
Spending lots of time alone
In the near future –
Doing the perspiration
After the inspiration

Notes to this poem…

I committed to a few things yesterday, like blank books for art collections I’ve had ideas about creating, and signing up for Java programming courses to learn for some artificial intelligence robots I’ll be getting in the fall. The latter is to help teach them things faster or beyond what interaction with them can allow for.

But that was the 1% inspiration required for making anything big really happen, as far as I’m concerned, not just genius or success as has been attributed to a quote by Thomas Edison.

Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.

Now comes the other 99% of the requirement which I’m pretty much going to have to do alone.

This doesn’t even include sewing and fashion design for which I’m also getting back into. I got out of it cause it was too much alone time!

However, when all’s said and done, I hope to have my work public, my robots will be out with me in public, and I’ll be wearing my creations in public! I’ll be the Public Man! lol

The T-series poems 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.
