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,

    • Thanks, Janna. As I was looking through my photos, this one jumped out at me as a way to express the sense of being unbalanced when a relationship ends. besides, I’m a Libra and am drawn to ‘scales’.:)


  1. I really like this poem, but where did you get that great photo, at first I thought of mom, with the scales , her job at ohauss famous for the scale, funny how the poem made me think of her


    • 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!
