this is the poem i entered in the last grade 8 2020 polar expressions poetry contesting 2020. It didn't make the cut but i'm hoping to share it here.


Is it perfection?

Could perfection be the flame,

the bright bursting flame,

of a mape tree in autumn?

Leaves swirling,

red orange gold,

in infinite complexity of its own design?

Maybe a grand orchestra

a hundred strong,

with sounds and instruments of all imaginings,

orderly chaos at its finest?

Could Perfection be a feild,

flourishing in both flora and fauna,

everything differentiating,

each living thing more spectacular than the the last?

A flock of songbirds,

each singing its own,

filling the trees withe their calls?

Or maybe,

just maybe

Perfection can be found

in a lone golden maple leaf

dancing in the wind,

or as the single soaring note of a violin,

ringing clear and true.

As a single vivid poppy,

or a sparrows call at dawn.

Maybe Perfection is not complexity at all,

but something else.

Something different.
