One Deep Breath- "Solitude Haiga"


"wabi-sabi" In general, the meaning implies beauty in imperfection, impermanance, and incompleteness. (see Wiki Wiki Web) It also infers a sense of solitude. See others here

I love the way you have put the words on the petal. I also enjoyed visiting the rest of your blog and seeing the wonderful wedding photos.

Hmmm. I like things to be imperfect. All the best things are imo.

:)

I love how you wrote the haiku on the single rose petal. That's so perfect for this theme! VERY cool, Tammy!

It is so true that Life is only but a breath and blessings to prevail. I love it and how you put it on a petal. Beautiful!

Lovely idea to write a haiku on a petal.

nicely profound haiku, tammy - i like the haiga!
it is strange to discover that thing i've been admiring for years has a name 'wabi-sabi' and that other people notice it too.

Very thoughtful, insightful haiku, Tammy. Really well done.

Wonderful Haiga, very thought provoking and placing it on a single rose petal is so beautiful.

Beautiful, Tammy. And I really love to get lost in the concept of wabi-sabi. Finding rest in imperfection - it's part of the letting-go process for me.

a fragile rose petal for life, which is itself so fragile

a perfect pairing of words and photo for your haiga

The haiku and words go so well together.

Imperfections bring both beauty and fear.

Lovely & many-layered - like a rose. Nice work!

Lovely haiga :-)

That's so lovely - and you have captured wabi-sabi, as far as I'm beginning to understand it. I just noticed at One Deep Breath, the links are grouped in 3s - like haiku, and the group you appear in says:

Same as it ever was...
The Daily Warrior
Trailing Light

It struck me as so true of you! You bring light all the time.

The poison air is not frequently identified... how wonderful - "blessings prevail"

Sandy said...

That is pretty. And the words are so true.
