Unbalanced

Balanced scales shift, day by day

They give and take, they tilt each way, 

‘Til  Yin and Yang in disarray,

Scales un-evened, to my dismay,

Unbalanced, savage swing and sway,

He’s gone away.

      I tooh this picture with my iPhone, when we were in Mt. Vernon, George Washington’s home, a few weeks ago. As we toured the beautiful, old mansion we were walking through the kitchen area…this picture is of the mantle and such at the open hearth where they cooked all their meals. I can see why scales reminded you of Mom, not to mention the symbol of Libra. That’s probably why I took the picture. Thanks, Ei!
