Heavenly Perfection

Sammi Cox Weekend Writing Prompt #3 – Imperfect

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of at least ten lines, where every other line contains the word “imperfect” or one of its synonyms.

Heavenly Perfection

The imperfect soul a beautiful thing
makes the angels in heaven rejoice and sing
its plethora of flaws the world calls ugly
but in this the spiritual eye sees transparent beauty
In its brokenness the soul learns compassion
and pours this out on others undone
Inferior is how others may view an unfinished soul
but in the hand of God it becomes refined gold
Incomplete, unpolished is what we are on this earth
until heavenly perfection completes its rebirth
