Mono no Aware: The Impermanence of Things

Shoot, I forgot who the poet is (Basho?) but I found this in my journal (the one where I write the really secret stuff ;) hehe) Anyway... just thought I'd share.


Poem 1

Why should my heart
remain stained
by blossoms,
When I thought I had tossed that all away?


Poem 2

Trailing in the wind
Fuji's smoke
fades into the sky
destination unknown
just like my own thoughts
