Lost Perfection Published on Visual Verse

I love the Visual Verse website. Every month they have a picture prompt and writers are asked to submit a 500-word piece based on the picture. Your objective is to give yourself an hour and then submit the piece using their online form. I find this a really useful creative exercise and have had a number of pieces published on their site. The picture prompt for December resulted in a poem called Lost Perfection which is now live on their website.
