Poem: Balance

Inspired by this image.


Balance
Rocks with their
naturally-applied
(water) color, from
the lake where I
grew up, where
perhaps I come
from, and if not I,
then at least some
microbe with traces
of my DNA. Perhaps
there are still bits of
my original progenitor
on the moist stones
that I pull up from
the shore and
dry in the sun
before I begin
to set up the
balancing act,
to unify my mind
with the world
