Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Balancing Act

on May 13, 2016

Janus-faced, two views.
Looking back, gazing ahead
Panoramic sight.

Comes a time in life
Years behind grow numerous
Tilt balance toward past.

Seesaw-like what’s up
View of future, contemplate
Time of less is more.

    Excellent piece–I especially like the final line; so true that “time of less is more”…

    “Time of less, is more…” That is just a perfect way to understand life, especially as we grow a bit older 🙂 The balancing act of life and of every day is a lot like this: looking back, gazing ahead ~ and trying to balance all that can be seen behind us while forgetting to think about what’s ahead can be quite difficult…this haiku a great reminder. Thank you.

  3. “time of less is more” …. beautiful!
