any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
I like the idea that we can find perfection everywhere, Sumana. And so true that a rose is perfect despite its thorns. Smiles.
Such an insightful poem Sumana :D I agree that the touch of perfection is found in the balance which is restored in the universe. Thanks for your kind participation :DLots of love,Sanaa
Thorns and all... lovely
I love this sentiment - perfection needs those thorns.
Life and death...two parts of perfection. Nicely done.
In the quest for perfection, we may overlook the simply beauty in flaws.
It is so hard to accept that death is part of the plan until we think really hard about what life means...each one of us has chance but it is not always up to us to fulfill our own desires.
Life isn't always smooth. There's a hidden beauty in rough surfaces too but often taken for granted. Happy New Year, Sumana.
when we look at nature and the universe.. we can find so many perfect things.. beautiful.
I love the line - From an atom to a nebula - and the notion that we are perhaps blind to perfection..perhaps everything is as intended which makes it so...a wonderfully thoughtful and reflective poem to start the year..
Hi Sumana!I love your poem here. You're saying that flaws and things that bite in our lives are all part of our perfect design. You are a genius! one of my favorite poems!
"It needs to have thorns tooThat’s what makes it perfect"oh indeed, perfection is perfectly imperfect.
I too love the idea of the thorns making a rose perfect! Life needs both the dark and light for perfection.Donna@LivingFromHappiness
loved the point about balance !
I love this! For I believe that perfection is lost when we try to define it as something that lacks all unwanted things. But like your poem suggests, a rose without thorns is not perfect at all.
Oh, harsh and beautiful and true: that tougch of perfection can sting.
This is so beautifully true.Happy New Year, Sumana Ma'am :)
Yes, perfection must entail a bit of pain as well. A great insight!
Thorns, the perfect protection for the perfect flower.
I so agree. Perfection can be found in all things...even the so-called flawed. And I like how you portray Death's hands as "restful." Yes.
from atom to nebula...and that nebula is made of...atoms. Perfect circle. Perfection in the circle of creation, birth, life, death...Life without death is only endless life. The completion of the cycle makes perfection. Wonderful poem.
Nice...I'd add to perfection 'divine' ~ divine perfection.
Great thoughts... well writtenZQ
Beautiful insight. There is a subtle cadence in this piece that adds to the message when the poem is spoken aloud.
Really like the idea that a rose's thorns are part of its perfection. How easy to apply that to individuals. Very thoughtful piece,Elizabeth
"from atom to a nebula" terrific image of the spectrum as is the "restful hands of Death"
Nice. Life and all is perfect, the way it should be, even when we don't like it.
Perfection is this unique balancePerfectly said for perfection is a balance in relativity. Perfection can be gauged when it is relative to something imperfect!Hank
So well said... :)
The black and the white.. the grey.perfection
That's such a hopeful view....Lovely!
oh wow, this is a new perspective on perfection.you have opened my eyes! :)
hummmm......and it is only when you reach 'it' can you say prefection, when all seems so much confusion.
