Letting go

This hangs over my dining room table.
One of the shades is always crooked.
No matter how many times I walk by and straighten it,
I always find a shade askew.
Today, for once, I refrained from straightening.
I looked at the crooked shade.
And then I let it be.

Sometimes I need to resist the temptation of making it perfect.
