Behind The Curtain

Danseuse enchants on stage,
Wisping elegance astride the shrouds,
Luminous grace between the drapes.

But behind the curtain,
Where no one sees,
She knows only darkness.

Spending Time

when I can:
    choose how I spend my time.

    choose to be content with how I spend my time.

I am never there. I am always getting there.
But I am here. Feel the wind.

I am never done. I am always doing.
But I am here. Feel the bumps.

The road never ends. There is always more.
But I am here. Feel the curves.

I am never balanced. I am always balancing.
This is balance. I am here.

There exists one person, such that this person plus you equals one.

The proof is left as an exercise for the reader.
