Rinkly Rimes said...

I'm reminded of my grandfather's little orchard. We were allowed to eat the apples on the ground.

Teresa said...

I love this. The way an apple can taste so great even it if has a bump on it.

Linda said...

Things don't have to be perfect (or long) to be good.

JeffScape said...

Hahah! Very transient! ;)

Nice!!..bkm

Selma said...

Glorious wordplay that reads very well aloud. It rolls around the tongue, tantalising as a piece of apple. So good.

Brian Miller said...

Claudia said...

imperfect perfection - like this - you say a lot with few words

kathew said...

"wabi sabi" woo hoo! Nice magpie!

gospelwriter said...

totally wabi sabi {clapping hands} - well done!

spacedlaw said...

Sweet and tart,
Luminous and dark
Ice in the air.

Stafford Ray said...

'wabi sabi'. I had to Google it and glad I did. Then realised that is how I see people. Perfect Imperfection makes me smile in solidarity! So neat and profound!

Daren and Patience said...

like the contrasts,a very clever haiku. well done.

emily wierenga said...

Angie Muresan said...

Ah yes. Perfection imperfect... I can think of several people fitting this description.

rebecca said...

loved "perfection imperfect." that's deep....

steviewren said...

Love the last line! I'm all wabi sabi myself...I'm imperfect and getting more so minute by minute! If that is beautiful, then baby bring it on!!!

Abhilasha-The Desire said...

I'm very new to these form of writings (fractal, haiku) and yours never fail to amaze me.. just few words can say so much... 'Perfection imperfect' and wabi sabi were some brilliant use of words....
Love ur style

Lena said...

wabi sabi......hadn't heard that in years! Another great Haiku - (and lesson for the kids!)

Words A Day said...

I don't know what wabi sabi means but love how it sounds in your haiku!

Reflections said...

So much said with only a few words. Well done.

Kristen Haskell said...

I also had to look up wabi sabi and am also glad that I did. Fantastic Haiku.

Tattered and Lost said...

The ground in the orchard is full of fallen leaves and apples sooner than expected. Indeed a mixture of ready and rough.

kavisionz said...

Ooohh.. nice!! Truly paradoxical!!
By the way, the title totally reminded me of Isaac Newton!! :)

Nice take on the Magpie!!!

Tina said...

I like this. Very much. Thanks for stopping by @ Life is Good. Appreciate the encouragement.

Lydia said...

I loved this haiku even before I googled "wabi sabi"....then I loved it!
