This is so deep. I am going to read it again to imbibe the full impact of its meaning.

You open up a real can of worms with this Davy. So much to argue about when we honestly confront what is or is not worthy in the art world.

Davy, I know you talk about Art as the title says and yet I saw this enormous canvas tent under which illusion is the currency and no sun can reach. Now to paint illusion, that is a different ‘cup of tea’.
Quite some rambling from me this morning.😊

    No rambling Miriam, you offer some valid and pertinent thoughts. That is the joy of poetry, it can be read and perceived in so many different ways. Thanks for taking time to read and comment.

As per the previous comments which bizarrely follow my thought pattern. As Yassy said, are we talking fake as in copies or something cerebral as in ‘is this Art or a stack of bricks’.
Roland runs with the latter and raises the bar higher with the question of what truly constitutes art and then in comes Miriam with a curve ball and raises the question about illusion, Hugely entertaining and interesting post from the master haiku mindblender with what I can only describe as some form of marra zen !

    Thank you Nigel, I am honoured and humbled by your comments. I had the privilege of working with the detective who was responsible for the finding and recovery of Munch’s, The Scream after it had been stolen. I had many an interesting pint and conversation with him about the Art world. It makes you think about what and what is not real. There are artists making huge sums of money producing fake paintings.

I guess I overthought this one because my first impression was that it was a metaphor for our culture, too. Much of what we perceive to be realβ€”if we stop to consider it at allβ€”is an illusion. We have to dig deep for the authentic stuff. And most people don’t want to bother. But it’s the illusive part that drives economies, that sells, and I could go on; but I won’t.

    I agree Laura. These quotes often bring different interpretations and provide great conversation pieces. I look at each poem as a seed for future poetry. It is, as you say, something that makes us scratch deeper under the surface. We are living in a 100mph world and sometimes have to battle to prevent our writing moving in the same way.

Excellent, Davy! Often your writings have more than one meaning to me! I like that! You get me thinking and pondering! This haiku makes me think about art-art/those who try to forge it, etc., AND it makes me think about the goings-on in our world today. Seems like the fake often gets more attention than the authentic. 😦
The good news for art-artists is that all art has an audience that appreciates it. It might only be a few people (Ha), but it does have an audience.
HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
