Impermanence Haiku

Impermanence Haiku

Fragrant wood shavings.
Here today. Gone tomorrow.
Sacred essences.
-Janetti Marotta

This post is part of my Haiku series. If you haven’t already, please read my “Introduction to Haiku” post.

Short practice:
When we find ourselves struggling with what life is giving us or not giving us, it often feels like it’s going to last forever. When caught in this delusion, repeat the phrase: “Everything changes. Nothing remains the same.

“All rises, falls, rises, falls… Permanent impermanence.”
-Janetti Marotta
