A Sense of Balance

A Favorite Theme of Mine...

March 28, 2005


In the darkness, I am the light,
in the light, I keep to the shadows.
Two hands have I,
with one, I draw inward,
with the other, I disperse outwards.
Give and take,
and the balance is kept.
Where is the delicate balance-point -    
neither to lean too much
this way or that?
My sense of balance is within.
I walk the line,
the delicate wire
and know the leverage point
is within.
From this,
all else proceeds.
I remain on my own feet,
being and doing.
