Intro to Poetry: Day 5–Imperfect, Limerick

Write of Passage

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.
