Balance

By Sara Kelly

Lady of Scales, 

your heart’s yearn 

for that not tangible. 

Winter wishes, 

wound a balanced soul.

Isn’t it true; 

desire which 

cannot be held 

in the palm 

of a sure hand? 

The enjoyment of 

elderberry nights –  

mere distraction? 

From destruction 

of desire for peace 
causes a liberal, Libran mind?
