The Lark

A Matter of Balance

Prose poem

How can you tell that you have met a truly balanced person
What are their hallmarks
Their equilibrium is not easily sundered
You feel the difference when in their presence
Not akin to perfection
Rather a sense that they are anchored
Rooted like the tallest tree
Capable of being buffeted by the elements
Without fear of dismemberment



The Lark shares fictional short stories and poetry
