Balance (One Deep Breath)

15 Oct

Our beautiful earth
on a delicate pinpoint
If a gentle breeze
Can tip the balance askew,
Will we not miss each wingbeat?

    Its not easy to write poetic about a serious issue without one killing the other. I think you’ve managed it here – the middle three lines are especially gentle but still contain all the meaning they need to.

    This is beautiful! So much depth and yet said in a light and clear way!
