It’s April of 2022 and Day 23 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 23 – Wabi-Sabi
Meaning: The beauty within the imperfections of life and art – an imperfect beauty. The thought of finding beauty in every aspect of imperfection in nature.
There is always, A stranger in you, Looking for perfection, And another stranger in you. The only perfect, Ever to be, Is possibly, The wabi-sabi.
We all know the ending. But we still need to live through the parts of the story. That is why imperfections make it worthy of living.
It’s April of 2021 and Day 23 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.
Day 23 Country: Wallis and Futuna
Wallis and Futuna is a small country, islands, with around 15k population. It is a territory made up of three main volcanic tropical islands and a number of tiny islets. The original inhabitants built forts and other identifiable structures on the islands, many of which are in ruins, but some of which are still partially intact. Only 5% of the islands’ land area consists of arable land. There are some villages in the islands which do not have telephone and internet connection yet (I personally feel that must be a bliss).
In the land of waters, Sits a monk, Defining new seasons, Guarding aspirations. Let it go, Let it grow, Wait and watch, The monk and his fable.
We think we can do a better job. We think we can handle it well. But some thrive and grow, only when let free.
It’s April of 2021 and Day 14 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.
Day 14 Country: Norway
Norway, having one of the lowest crime rates in the world, ranks first on the World Happiness Report. Also, ranks first in better life index, freedom index, public integrity etc. Lofoten in Norway is known for its dramatic scenery – you will be awed by the pictures. Northern lights or Auroras, are pretty famous in Norway. No, not that it’s only Norway where you get to see the northern lights but Tromso in Norway, is widely regarded as one of the world’s best places to see the Northern Lights. Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind. You can see a compiled image below.
The lights, That paint the sky, Like a magic charm, Like someone there, Wants us to wait, Wants us to experience, The beauty that is, In every little moments.
It’s not always snow that gives you a chill. I am sure being there, amidst the greens in nothing less than magical.
