.IMPERFECTION.IN.PERFECTION.

January 26, 2016 at 7:58 pm (Uncategorized)

Since I published my first novel on Amazon yesterday, I’ve been thinking a lot about my father since my father always longed to see my first book published.

And while I was thinking about my father a great deal, I happened to read my dear friend Sherrie’s blog post yesterday.

It was an entry where she had posted one of her father’s poems that he wrote called Imperfection In Perfection.

He wrote the poem in kanji writing (Japanese writing in iconographic Chinese characters that are painted on paper with a brush).

He translated the poem into English for his daughter Sherrie.

It is a wonderful magnificently beautiful poem.

I absolutely love his opening line, “Life is like a distant breath of God.”

In fact, I love every line in this poem.

Every phrase and every sentence rings with the most beautiful simplicity and at the same time the most sublime and awesome majesty.

Just from this one poem, I can tell that he was a first rate magnificent poet of the highest order.

I can definitely tell where his daughter Sherrie gets her own wonderful magnificent poetic talent from.

Since I now have many more readers than I did back in April of 2013, I thought I would share this again.

Dracul Van Helsing

Ted Logan was nobody’s hero.

 

He wasn’t a hero to his wife.

 

He wasn’t a hero to his father.

 

He wasn’t a hero to his son.

 

He wasn’t even a hero to himself.

 

Ted Logan was a hockey player.

 

30 years old.

 

Played most of his life in the minor leagues.

 

Was called up to the NHL occasionally for a few games but was quickly hustled back down to the farm teams.

 

Over the course of his hockey career, 6 NHL Hockey teams had held his rights.

 

When he was traded, it was usually because both the major league team and the farm team wanted to give him up.

 

Now he was with his 7th NHL team.

 

But no lucky 7 for him.

 

Once again he played down on the farm.

 

But injuries to a couple…
