The Balance



The Poetry Prompt for the week is to look at an artist's self-portrait and see if you can tell what the artist is trying to say or reveal. Then write a poem about the self-portrait.





balancing scales

weighing thoughts

positives  negatives

negatives positives

somewhere in-between

a balance strikes

a moment of enlightenment

but then again

so many thoughts

criss-cross

setting off the cogwheel

thoughts weighed

trying to fit the bits and pieces

once again

balancing scales
