One foot on water
the other on land,
itís like
a tight rope,
so far to the end.

The sun rises slowing.
I feel its warm rays
and wish for
the growing
the lilies display

That I might be bathed
in luminous joy
discovering
balance
and centering soul.

The secret's not hidden
it's symbollic but true.
Three sides it does measure
but it only takes two.

I like very much that you guys get the idea and keep it simple.

My favorite stanza is the second, because it is just like to you to view the sun as rising, and not as setting.

(I see you like to view your cup as half-full to overflowing!)

And that is just one of the many things I love about you. And yes, lady, you are, indeed, "balanced" via the middle path!

Thanks so much lovie! (I was gonna do this one, but I think I've done it before.)

Now if I quit practicing at Temperance and finally "perfect" it, eh?

Warm hugs on a chilly night, lady!

Thanks you again.

Can't sneak anything by you can I, Ser?!  *grins*  It was fun.  Keep on with the challenges....I might eventually learn something.  Love you, too.   .....jojo

lily jo ~ YOU know! ~ and intuitively! I love the purity and simplicity of your interpretation. I do wish that you would post more often ~ however, your poetry is always worth the wait!

Thanks to the Serene One for her challenge that inspired such beauty.

May you live the golden mean of balance and harmonization.

Loving hug,

Linda

I loved this!  You took the complete opposite view as I.  Together we balance!

This was marvelous!
I'm having fun seeing what others have to say and whatnot.. I do like Miss Serenity's challenge, and especially your response.
