In the quest of making,

Everything perfect,

We often forget,

At times things are beautiful,

Just the way they are.

Nothing is perfect,

We always have our flaws and scars.

Do not forget,

Imperfections are beautiful too.

Embrace your imperfections,

For they make you who you are. 

It is our imperfections,

That makes life perfect.

Because it is the little imperfections,

That make life beautiful.

Wabi sabi: a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.

Language : Japanese

I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.

    Imperfections are a part of our well being. Nobody is perfect but everyone has one perfect quality. Praising life and accepting reality is the biggest path to happiness.
    Your series of finding a word in different languages is very interesting.
