Impermanence

“This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.” ~ Buddha

Impermanence (anicca) is at the very core of Buddhist teaching. It’s the basis of the other two marks of existence –  suffering (dukka), and not-self or insubstantiality (anatta).

This blog is a home for my haiku and my photos – an  attempt to capture impermanence in poetry and images.  It’s also a place for my occasional thoughts on my journey along the Buddhist path.
