  1. ahhhh i wish it were funny…it was once…but i have experienced this in reality… truly perfection deserves perfection…all the rest just need to find trust, love and harmony.

  2. I took this as the perfect spouse being one like me, one who knows herself well and knows her imperfections. The perfect mate to someone like the I of the poem is another I. However, I am out of synch with the way others took it.

    1. Dear Carroll,
      No one is wrong or out of sync, I reckon. I toss a pebble and who is to say what ought to flutter out…
      I simply love and welcome variety of thoughts and words.
      All good wishes,
      Eric

  3. The first thing that comes to my mind is that the opposite is naturally true of human nature — one seldom see’s one’s glaring flaws or faults (the log in one’s eye, so to speak), and readily finds the imperfections of the one close at hand, the spouse. I like the honesty of the speaker of the poem, in acknowledging his/her imperfections, and perhaps longing for the ideal in a spouse.

  4. Nooo… there is no perfect spouse. Even if we clone ourselves, I think we will quarrel with our other half…lol. So two imperfections maybe complement each other, hopefully.
    Have a great Friday !!

  5. Knowing yourself… a long road, a journey that requires a lot of inner confidence.
    Thanks for remind me to stop and think about…

    1. Thank you Ian.

      Blessed are those who know better than to seek perfection in others,
      Happy are those who are halfway there, these are those who know their own imperfections,
      Pity on those who look in the mirror and see not their own imperfections.

      Have a great weekend, Eric

      P/s Hope you manage to find a buyer and at a good price

  6. I don’t believe there is such a thing as perfection lol – it is a great irony for flawed person looking to be completed by another. Been there and done that!

    1. Perfection on this earth…that’s debatable
      If we’re truthful, we’re all guilty of seeking perfection in others, at one time or another. With age, some realise how elusive ‘perfection’ is…only some
      This is my take

  8. So much true! we being ourselves imperfect always try to look out for a perfect partner,ignoring our faults ,we always try to find faults in other half..The basic human habit never dies of desiring for the best yet not trying to improve self..

    1. Very truly observed Soumya dear.
      What I’ve said with this post is another take on – why criticise the splint in another, when we ignore the logs in our own…
      Have a great weekend,
      Eric πŸ™‚
