Tipping

Tipping the scales between wrong and right, balancing the weight of words and deeds
Peace and justice are reasons to fight for calm harmony is what I love and breathe

My zodiac sign is the only inanimate object representing my fixation on symmetry
My love of art, beautiful surroundings, a deep penchant for intriguing poetry

At times I can be quite willowy, with visceral thoughts floating in the fresh air
Some days I am fickle and controversial, causing people to think I don’t care.

But in spite of all my idiosyncrasies I know this much is true,
Venus, my ruling planet craves love and nothing else will do.

  1. Interesting slice of you, energetic, flitting about like a small bird, that when it takes wing, it’s tail fans out into fantastic colors. Love is the cosmic common denominator

  2. I appreciate the window to your innermost self, with Venus ruling you most. I love that you seek symmetry and love of harmony.

  3. The shape and form of this poem reflect the subject matter, my Libran friend! That’s a great phrase ‘balancing the weight of words and deeds’, I like the rhythm of it and the alliteration of ‘weight/words’. I can understand your fixation on symmetry and the up and down I think we all have a bit of in the lines:
    ‘At times I can be quite willowy, with visceral thoughts floating in the fresh air
    Some days I am fickle and controversial, causing people to think I don’t care.’

  4. When all is said and done, the last two lines apply to us all ….. we all need love and nothing else will do! Well written.
