Autumn’s Imperfection

It is Day 6 of OctPoWriMo 2014.   I unfortunately missed days 1 -5.  I may go back through for my own benefit.  For today I’m sticking with the theme of ‘perfect’.   

Word Prompts: 

  • perfect
  • perfection
  • perfectionism
  • imperfection
  • imperfect

Shadow Poetry suggested form: Naani


Naani is one of Indian’s most popular Telugu poems. Naani means an expression of one and all. It consists of 4 lines, the total lines consists of 20 to 25 syllables. The poem is not bounded to a particular subject. Generally it depends upon human relations and current statements. This poetry was introduced by one of the renowned Telugu poets Dr. N.Gopi, presently working as vice-chancellor to Telugu University, Andhra Pradesh.

Imperfection begets beauty

Autumn’s hues paint lands

Change is everywhere

Leaves fall to embrace winter.
