RFW Wk32: TRUE BEAUTY COMES FROM IMPERFECTION

Romantic Friday Writers is a bi-weekly blogfest hosted by DeniseCovey_L_Aussie who challenges us to write 400 words or less of prosetry (prose/poetry) based on the given theme. For Wk32, the theme is "The Perfect 9.5". For submission/membership guidelines or to read the other entries, please click here... 
(word count: 196 MPA=minimum critique points acceptable)


What makes a woman beautiful is simply her imperfections.

Her faults can be easily overlooked when the beauty of kindness and love are expressed through her loving eyes.

Even on those days when she does not look and feel her best, the goodness in her heart will still shine through like a gentle luminescence from the heavens.

She is the ultimate, priceless jewel, for her worth is far greater than any accomplishment a man can achieve in this world.

A sleeping infant is comforted upon her warm bosom and an undying love is held inside the depths of her heart.

True beauty does indeed come from imperfection, for she even welcomes grief sometimes, if it will result in peace, before a new day dawns.

Even blooming flowers joyfully wave their silken petals for her attention whenever the very breath of her timeless presence comes into their midst.

The heart of a woman was made beautiful from birth, causing her very existence to decorate the earth with love every time she gracefully walks upon its soil.

Without a doubt, it is because of the imperfect image of a woman that man has come to know life's greatest perfection.

  4. To see a person's imperfections and love them in spite of those flaws (we all have them) is what true love is all about, or at least should be :-) Beautifully penned, as always, dear Andy! I'm really enjoying participating and reading the 'fruits' of the challenges bloggers host. I especially enjoyed the third line of this lovely poem :-)

  6. Dear Andy,

    This is one of the best descriptions of love that I have ever read. Imperfection is part of being human; and being human and imperfect, we can still love. It is love that makes us complete.

    Best wishes & hugs,
    Anna

  22. I'm afraid it would be of no use to show your lovely post to any of the men in my life. They are a wild lot who would never admit to romantic sentiment. Nevertheless, I'm sure many have enjoyed your tribute to women.

  25. Dear ANdy,
    My comment disappeared before I was finished writing. I guess you have comment moderation.

    I was sayingh that thanks to you, Andy, I am writing posts for RFWers.

    1. My lovely Anna,
      Your daughter comment made me smile. It's almost like I can see you rushing off to fetch her. ;-)

      Sorry about your earlier comment. I don't use word verification...I find it very annoying & I've been having a few spam comments make their way through, so yes...comment moderation is switched on.

      I am so happy that you took me my advice to join RFW. I know it's not easy for you to write in English as it's not your first language, but I have seen a remarkable change in your writing. Being a part of RFW has helped us all improve...even me (smile). I will not be doing the A-Z Challenge. With working the long hours I do, I just don't have the time. I wish you the best if you decide to do it. Denise has signed up for it too.

      Thanks for stopping by again. I'll probably see you over at Miss Jenny's.
      Take care for now, my dear. <3
