Insightful and well written.Madeleine Begun Kane
Your metaphor is expressed so well in these lines.
love... the last lines in particular.
prism of light and glory, very nicely done
Honesty of love....a lovely piece
..still an imperfect beauty... lovely li'l piece... smiles...
Tightly expressed wisdom.
A beautiful crisp poem. It often requires a wise person to make us aware of our shortcomings.
This is so true.
eh that is all part of it eh? when we get close enough we see the flaws...to me though, that is where the real beauty lies....
Very, very touching.
Goodness I came here attracted by your name. Is there a bad atheist? Your flaws will be seen but no longer as flaws.
atheists come in all types, good and bad, and, at times, both within the same person. One can but try their best. I've written about my beliefs here: http://agoodatheist.blogspot.co.nz/p/a-good-atheist.html
I trust the light will spill over to soften and transform the perceived flaws:)
I hope so!
Love this, especially your close!
Only if you dare to get closer ....
The ending was just so perfect! :)
Perfect diamonds are really rather boring you know. It's the flaws that make a diamond have fire.
