To what do we liken perfection?
Could it be clear lines of definition
bordering calibrated colours?
What about a stem sprouting seemingly random appendages
and yet a plant without self-image issues
bearing roses without ego … supported by a self-assured stem
and no one to point the finger of derision
Yes…. a wonderfully complex creation
….. just like the rest of us
