Wabi-Sabi

by Amanda Addisson

 

stuck

we’re stuck in this place,

this time

 

together in what seems like forever

or maybe an unforeseen holiday?

 

broken in pieces

waiting

 

to be glued back together

golden cracks rebuilding a simple vessel

 

of all our imperfect impermanence

 

 

wabi-sabi is a Japanese world view centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection
