Wabi Sabi: A Haiku Trilogy
daylilies in dusk see painted horizons fade transient delights
half moon is waxing sourdough bread's on the rise life moves in cycles
mistakes birth aha's and cracked glass prisms the light embrace imperfection
The concept of wabi sabi has dimpled my life in interesting places lately. It seems that every time this concept of celebrating the impermanent, incomplete and imperfect comes up, the universe gives me another gentle nudge to express the idea through a poem. And what better poetic form than the haiku, which has roots in the same philosophical approach to life as wabi sabi.
If you look carefully you will find a self-referential element in this post.
