1a Perfection/ From My Book. - Poem by Ronald Peat
Every oak will lose a leaf to the wind.
Every star-thistle has a thorn.
Every flower has a blemish.
Every wave washes back upon itself.
Every ocean embraces a storm.
Every raindropp falls with precision.
Every slithering snail leaves its silver trail.
Every butterfly flies until its wings are torn.
Every tree-frog is obligated to sing.
Every sound has an echo in the canyon.
Every pine drops its needles to the forest floor.
God’s whispered breath at dusk comes
with a frost and leaves within dawn’s faint mist,
for all of creation remains perfect, adorned,
with a dead sparrow on the ground.
