Tanka T118

You’d think nothing of
Most of some celebrated
Photographers’ pics –
If it were your friends who took
And posted them on Facebook

Notes to this poem…

Seriously, I’d like to take some of these photos and just post them randomly some time to see the lack of reactions they’d get. Your most social media active and/or closest friends might like them in a batch, but beyond that, there’d be nothing. Yet, I see a bunch hanging around in all kinds of galleries, including the Vancouver Art Gallery which had a bunch that inspired this poem.

I guess I’d have to admit those photos were inspiring then, don’t I? Darn. 🙂

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.
