Breathe out poetry Tuesdays

October 1

Symmetry and balance
that’s what it’s all about
that system of checks
and balances
that tightrope act, one foot
in front of another
swaying a little in the
wind of life
but that pole keeping you
each end exactly even
from your chest.
Perfect symmetry.
Perfect balance
for a few, sweet seconds
a single moment when
you can say
“I had it” and remember
years later, what it felt like.
