Perfect: A Blessing


Perfect like no mistakes?

or perfect like a feather—

bent all directions, bendy, soft and misshapen.

Or perfect like sand, where every grain is unique, 

and together sand is sand 

and apart sand is sand

and it’s still identifiable and beautiful either way. 

Perfect like light or like shadow, that moves and changes

according to its circumstances,

and becomes more or less strong, but is always present, 

and can have hard or soft edges


Perfect, Perfect like a curled feather 

shining against the sand 

in the light

with a shadow.

Yeah, that kind of perfect.

(I hope your those kinds of perfect)
