Perfect Imperfections

Dear ‘Lord’
“Your” beautiful creations are all there
But - the anomalies… for us to stare?
Can there ever be perfection?
Or is it just a misconception!

The lion ripping the gazelle
The mantis eating its own
And what of the Thorn bird
The epitome of self-destruct
And the lemming
In whose sorrow, does it drown?

What is “Your” paradoxical conception?
In this ‘Dog eat Dog’ world
What is the objective – the goal?
To fit square pegs in a round hole?

Yet - we seek, search and try to find “You”
To an unknown end, the goal I wish I knew.

Could the imperfections be “Your” ‘Swansong’?
To tell us that this world after all is not wrong
Seems -‘You’ wish us to keep guessing! Play the game
And perhaps some of us will eventually discover ‘Your’ name.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In this chaotic world, there is a pattern, however illogical it may all seem. It's all ordained as per 'His' predilections. Perhaps those of you who are aware of the 'chaos theory', would find it logical & simple to understand: -)

    Naida I've just added some notes about the poem. At times nature's cruelty evokes a very strong response from most of us & at times we feel helpless in alleviating somebody's pain. Maybe we are trying to interfere in Nature's design...a thought to ponder :)
    Thank you so very much for your kind appreciation.

    As always, your words are tastefully put together.
    What else can | say, this poem and your others are always excellent.

    There are questions making us wonder about life,
    But still, life is to be seized and enjoyed, and be surprised at what it will bring.

    A lovely and thought provoking poem; well said. The enigma in your poem has given rise to much speculation through the ages and yet He has left us an epistle in sixty-six installments to unravel that very conundrum. And you were right that the last word of your poem is the starting point. Which starting point can be found at Psalm 83: 18. Read mine - If There Be No God –

    Soul...Hi,
    On the outset, let me thank you for the comments. Perhaps you missed the core or the underlying message that I tried to convey in the poem. Nowhere is God blamed. It is about contradictions in the nature. May I request you to re-read it.

    How perfection can be tasted if no imperfection found, as how sweet is sweet if sour and bitter dont exist...in a little imperfections Thanks God we are able to see whats wrong whats right..but now we know it right, then depend on us to act right or wrong because we now have endure all taste...dont blame God blame ourselves my dear_Soul
