Balance Points | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

Birds on a wire
Snakes in the grass

Like unto like
Each unto its own

A bottle for the wino
Silence for the monk

Neon dreams for the artist
Dark nightmares for the politician

Truth for the seeker
Ignorance for the fool

A time for everything
A seed for each new season

Clouds in the blue sky
Scum in the murky pond

A kiss between lovers
A knife in the side

Signs of synchronicity
Warnings of perilous doom

A Renaissance for America
A downfall of the Empire

Order in the evolution of mindfulness
Chaos in the stagnation of misperception

Like unto like
Each unto its own
