Life of a Wave – Wabi Sabi

Wabi-Sabi speaks of the impermanence of things. It points to the natural world in the purest of forms. In his book ‘Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers’, Leonard Karen talks about the metaphysical qualities of Wabi-Sabi. He says:  

“Things are either devolving towards or evolving from nothingness.”

I thought of waves.

I emerge from the unlimited ocean. 
Formed by the earth, 
raised by the tides. 
Crashing, smashing, changing. 
I roar into life, 
explode into death, 
then disappear into the oneness
that bore me. 
My existence fully realized.

    One of my professors at York University, who taught the course “works and days” writing about writing,
    said that some artists were like falling stars, so bright but in the end they would explode, and be gone.
