The appearance of poetry in the media Instagram (Instapoetry) in recent years has changed the world of poetry to become more attractive to readers. However, some experts still criticize this genre of poetry, especially its lack of craftsmanship and substance aspects. Based on the above problems, this study seeks to explore the points of Wabi-Sabi’s philosophy offered by Instapoetry in a collection of poetry books entitled Love and Misadventure (2014). The content analysis method is combined with semiotic analysis to investigate the aesthetic values of Wabi-Sabi in a discussion of the various experiences of love. The results of the analysis show that mysterious, pessimistic, and disappointing experiences of love are used as the main tool by the poet to highlight the Wabi-Sabi philosophy. The findings also suggest that unpleasant experiences of love can be viewed as something that is no less beautiful if the reader interprets it based on Wabi-sabi’s philosophy.
