Day 5 of Intro to Poetry has me writing a poem on the subject “imperfect.” It’s a topic about which I can generate tomes. The “try it” format is the limerick.
My decision is to write about the current foci of my blog space–writing and art–in my never-ending strife to improve.
Reflection on Perfection
My pen leads me to a reflection
Of my strife toward attaining perfection.
Still, errors abound
In my work all around,
As I’m thwarted by natural selection.
Trite blunders appear in my writing;
My artwork is far from exciting–
My words and tints crushed.
Ah! Perfection is just
An illusion of shadow and lighting.
