Tanka T112

I’m bringing my own
Clouds, rain, thunder and lightning –
To work this morning –
Appropriate work ambiance –
For work waiting to be done

Notes to this poem…

This was written in August when I was in a different job than I was in now. It wasn’t so much that I didn’t like the work. I have no problem doing work I don’t like doing. It was that there was no value to it and some people just couldn’t see the light, blinded by their ego.

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.
