Wabi and Sabi

Japanese feeling

Born of the tea ceremony, wabi is an aesthetic of finding richness and serenity in simplicity. This was epitomized by the single wild flower and everyday plainness which decorated the tea house of tea masters. Sabi was a term for the beauty of haiku and it speaks of a quiet grandeur enjoyed in solitude. Both wabi and sabi are closely linked to the Zen striving for enlightenment through nothingness.
