Poetic Thoughts

"And it is precisely because it blooms and perishes that a flower holds our interest as something rare. So .... to know the flowering is first of all to know that nothing abides."

From a treatise on the training of Nō actors written in the fifteenth century by Zeami, the foremost Japanese classical dramatist. Taken from: Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetryby Jane Hirshfield. 1998. P89.
