Welcome to the Picture it & Write creative writing exercise. I invite people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (please provide a translation). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.

The Golden Ratio focuses on perfection and precision. Your beauty is diminished, flawed for not falling in perfect symmetry. Wabi-sabi celebrates imperfections. The Japanese believe something is beautiful in its impermanence.

A flower arrangement wilts, a sand sculpture is washed away by the waves. Both are more beautiful than the building meant to last forever. You appreciate it more. How many times will you pass that building? How many times will you be able to sniff the flowers?

Humans are beautiful. We are a flawed. Our beauty is fleeting. It is our imperfections that make us unique: the beauty mark on a woman’s lip, the young man’s crooked smile.
