What Balance Says

Balanced at the edge in a swirling wind,
her heels upon the solid where all was still,
her toes over open air where a free fall promised thrills.
Balance to hold.
Surrender to let go.
A breath and a heartbeat between pain and bliss
teaches bittersweet is exactly what it says,
extremes we can’t escape once they’re on our tongue.
