Candlewitch

a matter of balance

a matter of balance

how the moon and tides pull
on the hours of a life
and floating wind songs play
to the ebb and flow
on the balance of a knife
and how easily chaos
can disrupt an even mind
blood lust run amuck
and turn the blade in kind

        That balance of life gets easier with age and the knifes edge gets blunter the older it gets. All will be well.

          Cat,

          These words stopped me in my tracks...
          “and how easily chaos
          can disrupt an even mind”

          This happened once in my life and it took a long time to get back on track!

          I’ll have to agree with Gold’s comment. It is getting easier with age and I feel “All will be well”!
          Thank you for sharing!

          Hugs 🤗

            dear Laura,

            it has happened to me recently...so frustrating! it is very hard to kick out the chaos and sweep it from your mind. I'm still working on it... by the way... I love your comments 🙂

            hugs, Cat

            • Laura🌻

              You’ll succeed...I’m positive of that!

              Thank you for liking my comments. I think that at times my comments are too long!

              I’ll never forget when one of my high school teachers...(many decades ago)...told me to stop beating around the bush with my writings! I didn’t even know what he meant by that! I was just learning the English language at that time! I finally understood what he was talking about; but, as you can see, that old habit hasn’t died
