Blemish (Haiku)

it's alright to make
a few mistakes, miss some steps...
learn along the way


your faults and flaws are
emanations of delight
to him who loves you


what makes you awesome
are your li'l imperfections...
just be who you are

Wonderful haikus. Yup as long as you learn the imperfections can stay. And as always one needs to always be their own person. Well done. :)

Absolutely!...I keep telling my students this "Mistakes are there to be made"...make them and learn from them!

Amity October 11, 2010 at 4:36 PM  

Hi Pink Lady;

True, all your haikus mean a lot...

the few mistakes along the way make us learn;

the flaws and imperfections are a delight to your loved one; and

those li'l imperfections are what make us real...;-)

without blemish we make ourselves lovable to others...:-)

Very nice series here. I wish I could write like this. Love and Light, Sender

Pink Lady,
I enjoyed reading your lovely words.
Love and reality together. We all have some imperfections, but we learn to blend!

Best wishes,

Olivia October 12, 2010 at 5:33 PM  

Very well said- unfortunately not many recognize this pattern. They believe in what is gone and hold onto it with all their life..!!
Some awards for you..

Happy Fall

enjoyed your haiku and the picture prompt :O)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
