6. Compunction (n.))
10. Wabi Sabi- In traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常mujō), suffering (苦ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空kū).

Week 7 is here!
Check out the announcement/homepage and get your name on the participant list here: http://tourmalinenow.com/2017/12/13/color-your-world-120-days-of-crayola-2018-year-3/
Color your world is a 4 month long daily blogging challenge event. Each day has a new color theme based on a crayon color in Crayola’s box of 120 crayons. The challenge runs January 1, 2018 to April 30, 2018. The week’s colors will be announced via my ‘This Week’s Challenges’ posts each Sunday and you’ll have the following week to respond to those 7 colors as you choose. Post, daily, weekly, or anything in between.
Your contribution can come in any form – art, poetry, flash fiction, a tale of a miscellaneous memory – anything, the only caveat – it has to be inspired by the color of the day. You can join in every single day or simply post at your leisure.

The Guidelines are simple.
- Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in Englishas my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. The link above has links within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you likeinstead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
