Perfection & life…

Imperfect beauty! ©copyright2015owpp

Imperfect beauty!

If perfect was the word we would not be waiting.
If it was this world nor would we be swaying…

But if hurt was our daily bread
Would we have soaked,
In that fiery sunset?
Yet it inhabits our homes,
Weaving the baskets of our minds,
Dancing the steps of our lives.
Holding our souls with the satisfaction
that comes with ownership.
Cradling patiently our bruised ego
Teaching us the wisdom of our ephemeral journey.
We glean, gather, stocking it in neat piles
going on, in hesitant faltering steps.
Sun scorched, hail or rain,
Hoping to trick an old parchment,
Letters seared in its thick skin…
Having seen many alike
Wishing a trail filled with
Butterflies & vanishing ambushes…

Reality is a harsh teacher for joy & hurt intermingle.
They are the dough we roll, fashioning our spirit.

Perfect was never the word.
In this world.

  1. you write powerfully, and you and show a blue morphos. i am moved.

    • Thank you Cindy for this very kind feedback, it means a lot! We search & fumble for the right word wondering if the message will be as clear as you have seen it but we never know… then you write & I breathe a sight of relief 🙂
      By the way, thanks for the butterfly’s name, I had no idea. We went to a butterfly garden for the first time in our life, it’s the first thing we saw… it felt like belonging to some enchanting script!

  2. At the end of the summer, I have seen many butterflies with wings that are tattered and torn.
    Wish they could talk and tell me about the places they have traveled. Their lives are short but well-lived!

    • I have to look up their longevity on Google… It’s upsetting to see such a beautiful thing at the end of their life. Yes it would be nice to know where and how far they go.
      Thanks for dropping your thoughts on this post 🙂
