A diamond in the rough...

This weeks prompt from A Dash of Sunny is

I decided to use this image of a painting I made a couple of years ago because I love the 
Imperfection it embodies...mismatched limbs and irregular features and a glance between the two that speaks of fear and longing for companionship.

(Made in a class by Mitsi B)

The Beauty of Imperfection

They call a perfect diamond beautiful,
But a diamond in the rough
Glints of hope...
Hints of glory yet to be seen.
While a flawed diamond diverts light
to show it's hidden heart,
And shines in a way Unique 
in comparison.

Enjoy your Uniqueness XXX

  2. What a brilliant painting and poem - you made me consider the words and unique is far better than perfect/imperfect - we all shine in some way even if we can't see it yet

  10. Imperfection is a beautiful thing indeed....sometimes there is perfection in imperfection, if that makes sense. We are each "blessed" with flaws :) I truly love this.
