There Is Beauty In Imperfection……

Poetry, Day Five: Imperfect
We find faults in ourselves, in others, and in the world around us all the time. Today, write a poem about the imperfect nature of someone or something, whether you accept these imperfections or complain about them, try to fix them or celebrate them.    Mix it up by exploring a fun poetic form: the limerick, a traditionally humorous, five-line rhymed poem that can be used in a wide variety of interesting ways. Not sure how to use this form?

Well,,,gave writing a limerick a go, though mine is not humorous, I think it makes a good point!!! 

Found some seashells on the beach

Hundreds of them all within reach

Broken and cracked

Imperfect like that

Beauty is the lesson they teach….

  1. It’s interesting that universally it has been found that symmetrical faces are regarded as the most beautiful. But then the tests are conducted mostly with young university students who have to do a subjective rating of beauty. As I’ve grown older, I’m loving the lines and wrinkles in faces – imperfections show character and life history. Never was a limerick so meaningful. I agree with Calensariel!

  2. I liked the limerick because I often take pictures of shells on the beach. When there are many broken ones together they create a beautiful texture, a variety of colors that is stunning in a different way than a single perfect shell.

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
