Imperfectly perfect

Now is the time of the tulips’ fanfare.

They always remind me of my dear Oscar

And how he loved to pose in flowers.

I like the wildness and flaws

Of tulips towards the end of the season:

When petals unfurl to reveal the treasure within.

And cold skies that decide to surprise

With sunburst and promise of rain.

(Work is still crazy busy, so I won’t be replying or visiting you all. But I promise to read your comments should you want to drop me a line.)

  2. I love the title of this post because it’s something I make reference to a lot–how imperfection is perfect in its own way. And how flaws make things perfect!

    Such sweet a photo of Oscar! And that sunset is gorgeous!

    Thanks so much for sharing the beauty, my friend! 🙂 Have a super week!

  3. I remember dear Oscar, too. I’ve tried to plant tulip bulbs but the squirrels eat them. Now I depend on bouquets from the store to remind me it’s spring.

  4. I am always sad when the last of the tulips are torn apart, because it means a treasured part of spring is over. But, that is the way of Nature.
