Wabi Sabi

I went to New York Botanical Garden for Kiku exhibition at Bronx, NY.  Also they had the special arts of bonsai event at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory courtyards.  This bonsai made me chill. I felt Wabi Sabi. This is from wikipedia “Wabi now connotes rustic simplicity, freshness or quietness, and can be applied to both natural and human-made objects, or understated elegance. It can also refer to quirks and anomalies arising from the process of construction, which add uniqueness and elegance to the object. Sabi is beauty or serenity that comes with age, when the life of the object and its impermanence are evidenced in its patina and wear, or in any visible repairs.” Do you feel it?
