Haiku: Imperfect Beauty


Such gritty texture –
love the vintage wood and paint.
A sign from days past…

Are there any other fans of vintage out there?  Do you like things that are worn, chipped, rusted, or otherwise distressed, like I do?  I just think there’s something special about these worn looks – a story lingers in imperfect surfaces.  I feel that way about wrinkles and scars on bodies, too.  They tell part of our story…

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, dear readers!

Warm regards,

    Beautiful photo!
    My firs thought was the line from the B-52’s song (Love Shack) – “Tin, Roof, Rusted”. LOL – thank you; you brought a smile to me today and I needed it!
