Balance

star lights


Balance

Navigating
by stars,

one ball
buried,

another
gathering,

the dung
beetle

straight-lines,
maintains

position,
forever

looking forward
and up.

  1. Interesting contradictions: words that invoke determination and guidance from heaven in contrast to “beetle” and “dung”. A wry commentary on those who think that their goals are foreordained? On the rigidity of the narrowly focused? Or is it an appreciation of the humblest of vocations–these workers also look to the stars?
