Started for National Poetry Writing Month 2011, decided to keep things going. I've always liked writing poetry.
Need to have my daughter read this one. Very encouraging for the all who dabble in art. Thanks for visiting by my way. :)
Sketching is a wonderful experience. Yes, imperfection is an art in itself. A wonderful poem. Lovely! :)
It is the creative process that connects me to the Divine therefore, the end result is not very important. I like your poem very much. Thanks! pat
nice words of encouragement :)thank you and enjoy the potluck!http://lynnaima.wordpress.com/2011/05/24/without-my-shadow/
there is No definition of perfect ism on art.love the way you see how sketches work.cheers.
It's the lack of perfection that brings out the character of the artist, I always feel, and makes the difference between reality and art. Otherwise there is no point.(Thanks for prompting the surprising philosophical interlude before breakfast!)
Yes, it's okay to not be perfect. :)In fact, it's all you can hope for achieving.
The creative journey is the fun part =)
very perceptive.I think most artists agree with you - a work never quite seems 'finished'. I'm still working on finding that moment when it's OK to let a story go, because too much tinkering seems to eventually spoil it.
"you'll never be perfect, but that's okay"...I love this line of yours, it could be a mantra for my life!
Christine - Glad it's encouraging and thanks for sharing!carefree - very much appreciatedpat - I'm glad you found a connection, both the poem and with the Divinelynn - thanks!Jingle - lovely comment, as always
poetry - I love being philosophical!Eric - definitely truemind - and isn't life just one big journey?li - it just takes practice to know when you've worked it just enough and when you cross the line into too much editingzen - It's a good mantra for lots of people's lives. Glad you liked it!
As a friend of mine, another poet, says: "Real is better than perfect."
A lovely positive message.
