"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The Beauty of Imperfection

I've had just enough time...   to appreciate the imperfection of Life

Taken the same misty morning of the lake in Ampang Hill, Kuala Lumpur

I draw my lines straight
And my circles round
I pray to the God of Order
And fight chaos every day
I search for symmetry
The way some search for Truth
And I thought I found it in a pyramid
I explained Life through logic
Believed in the power of deduction
For everything has a reason
Even God
Only waiting to be found
When I understand
I will know what it is all about
Meanwhile I am a searcher, a seeker,
An explorer, an adventurer, a priest
But none of these titles fit
Till one day close to dying on my bed
A little hand on mine brought barren wells to life
Alas, I realized too late –
I was only meant to live

    On the same morning when I captured the dragons in love, I walked round the misty lake and contemplated Life. What it is all about as I am wont to do whenever in a quiet serene setting. I pondered on our pursuit of perfection and in doing so, how often we miss the forest from the tree. How we should just embrace Life as it is – in all its wonderful imperfection.

    Hope all is well.

    Of course I would love to see your garden with all the exotic plants,
    Its funny people say the opposite when they live in warm climates:-)
    I wish I had greenhouse, be well my friend.

    A perfect shot of the imperfect beauty in leaves. Love details, color, focus and light.

    By focusing on the beauty of imperfection ....you have found a beauty that is deeper than symmetry and logic and' correctness ' . An excellent image and well-chosen words !

    Such a lovely and delicate capture my friend. I love how they are lit up by the sunlight and you can see all the symmetries and all the imprefections - and which makes this image beautiful in its own way. And thank you for reminding us of how fighting against imperfection can make us miss so much positivity, beauty and potential that is within the imperfections in our lives. I have also come across people who have mastered to the fullest the ability to embrace most imperfection and convert those imperfections to wonderful possiblities. They are the sort of people who never seem discontent even if they get the shortest of straws in life. And oddly enough they also become the envy of the people with the longer straws. I hope I am making sense lol : ))
