SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Mono no Aware



Mono no aware (lit. “the pathos of things”), a Japanese term used to describe the awareness of “mujo” … the transcience of things and a bittersweet sadness at their passing.

The hue of the cherry
fades too quickly from sight
all for nothing
this body of mine grows old —
spring rain ceaselessly falling.

Ono no Komachi( 9th C. CE)
