Drawing is another pastime of mine and to draw well and/or realistically, you have to draw rough and imperfect edges first before you can make it look beautiful. That is how life in general works and looks like.

Sketch of Life

 

 

Start with a sketch

To make it real.

What is perfect

And has appeal?

 

The wind and rain

Don't use a comb.

They're best untamed

And left to roam

 

Than to follow

Unnatural lines

That freeze their breath

And chain their minds.

 

Perfect, itself

Is not unique,

But flaws can make

A special tweak

 

To be its own

Kind of beauty

That minds can't grasp

But eyes can see.
