Hues of imperfection #Poetry


Green barks and orange boughs
Mask the reddish leaves peeping out like newborn egrets.

Purple shrubs and magenta saplings
Show me a world of immense possibility.

Life isn’t about perfect colours;
Sometimes though, you do find butterflies.

*I found this old colouring sheet in my daughter’s file and began shading it for fun. Halfway through, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try different colours. The effect was therapeutic.
