A Balance Desired

by Neil Chatterton

Petals
Delicately balanced
Wondrous observers
Of change.

Inner feelings
Conflict
With reality
And life
Seems to
Spin and turn
At will
Forgetting
That sometimes
All that is needed
Is a breath.

This looking glass
Provides a glimpse
Of life
Of love
Of hurt
And of you.

You watch silently
Gathering yourself
For ahead lies
A future and
A destiny
Shaped by wants
Defined by needs
Driven by desires
All encompassing
As you
Take control.

Your essence
Shapes
Shifts
And gently
Caresses
Those petals
That surround you now.

You soak up
Their love
That never wavers
Or wants in return.
