balance

like a steel sphere suspended
between the pull of two magnets
she is held
as the centerpoint
between extremes
held in the tension
of counterweights
she is still
she is strong
the careful act of balance
played out in her relaxation
she feels the tug of all things
but is free from it all
the emptiness of equilibrium
seen in the elegant play
of peace and rest
rippling over the still pool
of her heart
