It’s April of 2022 and Day 21 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Wordy Wonders.” I am selecting words that have deeper and graceful meanings, from across the globe and an eight-line poem along

Day 21– Ukiyo

Origin: Japanese

Meaning: Living in the moment and detaching from the bothers of life.


The time ticks,
Streets that don’t talk,
Trees that swing,
Dust that fly,
All that you see,
Except you,  
In ukiyo.

I don’t think it’s easy to live in the moment. We carry loads of distractions and maybe we don’t even know what that looks like, anymore! But we can try. Can’t we?

Word Pronunciation: u-key-yo

  1. The celestial sphere changes,
    Tides that don’t talk,
    Sky that luminates,
    Stars that shine,
    All that I see,
    Is nothing but you.
    In ukiyo
