Desire to Discover

we become artists

remembering we forget

artistic life bits

drills desire to discover

lively elements of art

This tanka is written with a pivot element, meaning the first three lines can be read together, and so are the last three.

Artists, say, photographers or writers, begin their exploration in the world of art recognizing that we tend to forget the beautiful moments of life. In their desire to discover these artistic elements of life, they also discover the lively elements of art.
