Every Flaw Every Perfection December Book of the Month (BOM) by Susan Elliott

Click the image for more info.
"Every Flaw Every Perfection is a beautiful collection of poetry. It features romantic poetry, poems about day to day life, and a special poem written for Carl Amidon called "Picking Wildflowers." This is the fourth collection of poetry written by Susan Elliott. These poems are poems of the heart; including one in Gaelic with an English translation." (Amazon)

Words cannot express how much I love this collection of poetry. It is one of my favorites. Each poem included was written for a specific purpose and truly exposes the inner workings of my heart. I hope you enjoy it.

This month I will be sharing some of my favorite poems that are found within the book instead of giving you a definitive reading schedule. Poetry should be enjoyed and read in your own time. Every Flaw Every Perfection is available in ebook and paperback.


Poetry; what is this thing called poetry?
Is it mere words consisting of syllables,
symbolism, and meter, or is it more?

Poetry: What is this thing called poetry?

Is it something your high school English teacher
spoon feeds you as you kick and scream?

Poetry; What IS this thing called poetry?

It is the sound or rain.
It is a first kiss.
It is the boom-thump of your favorite song.

It is birth, it is death, and it is everything in

Poetry is.

And that is what makes it beautiful.

  1. My favorite poem in this book is the very first one. It brings back so many memories. You see, your Papa took me to creeks and I jumped off high rocks into his arms when I was a little girl, too. I read the poem and a tear comes to my eye from remembering such happy times.
