It’s not a secret,

I have a thousand flaws.

I line them up upside my head

and observe their stubbornness to never leave me.


(You did though)


Fresh cut grass – one of my favourite smells,

yet it’s funny

that I like something that’s just been cut.




(I should do the same to all my imperfections)


Everything happens for a reason, they say.

How do they know?

  1. I used to cut the grass when I lived in Argentina. We had a very big patio, with lot of grass. I hated it. Last night I dreamed about that. And now I read your poetry … it is a coincidence ?

    Hugs !!!

  2. Imperfection is what makes us human. They can tend to get a little unkempt but that’s why have to cut them back… Either by ourselves or we rely on someone else to do it. But when we do that…we normally end up cutting them out to like a weed because they embody the imperfection they so perfectly had made us forget.

    1. Oh, absolutely, nobody is perfect. Apart from other creations in the world (nature is outstanding!). But that’s the beauty of a determined mind – to get rid of imperfections, if possible.

  3. Not everything hapens for a reason. And even things not so small as for example our Universe emerged for no apparent reason whatsoever.
    I hope it’s beheading of mercy. I prefer to think so while mowing a lawn πŸ™‚
    And yes, you’re perfect and don’t you dare to think otherwise!

  4. And… who is they? Whoever they are… I think they are out to get me! πŸ˜‰

    The beheaded line reminded me of Sleepy Hollow, lol. Headless Horseman! Awooooo. πŸ™‚
