Digress Impermanence #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Impermanence - 蘇曼迦舉佛學中心

People take the longest possible paths, digress to numerous dead ends, and make all kinds of mistakes. Then historians come along and write summaries of this messy, nonlinear process and make it appear like a simple, straight line. Dean Kamen

Expatiate briefness,

Vacillate ephemeron,

Tangent evanesce.

Impermanence and selflessness are not negative aspects of life, but the very foundations on which life is built. Impermanence is the constant transformation of things. Without impermanence, there can be no life. Selflessness is the interdependent nature of all things. Without interdependence, nothing could exist. – Thích Nhất Hạnh
