The actual definition of bokeh

Bokeh (derived from Japanese boke ぼけ, a noun form of bokeru ぼける, "become blurred or fuzzy") is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.[1][/sup] Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject.

Bokeh is, to me, the same as having white space to black space....

Contrasting ideas
difference of thought
A good storytelling
has both black letters
and white space between
the words

A photo
has both the crystal clear
and that which is fuzzy background
Which is not wholly ignored
Nor wholly the subject which inspired
the photo

How well the artist used both
the white and black
the bokeh and sharply focused subject
makes the photo good
