Another from "primogenitive folly"

. . . a tightrope walker,
a pendulum, swaying on a thin thread,
follows earth’s wobble around her orbit
tracing pattern’s in the  church floor’s dust.
. . . as a counterweight to the heart:
a moment of calm, the  last thought thins
like the sun’s rays  seen from a distant star.
The clarity of a winter’s morning,
the  air coldly crisp throughout a blue sky.
I sway upon the edge, both hands outstretched
waiting on the right puff of wind to come
dissuade me from this precarious point.

(August 2001-April 2002, from primogenitive folly)
