off-balance UPSWING

Riding
On spiral strings,
Thrown off balance
I’ve won
The challenge
And lost
What I didn’t want.
And lost
What didn’t matter.
Tossed and crossed
With all I found
When I wasn’t looking.
The ice
Is melting
Someone
Help me
Understand the upswing.

Nothing there really in understanding the upswing. It can be most simply stated as : "Everything has a price"

But of course you knew that Pacy.

Planted
into deep earth
there the balance lies.
swaying in the winter pain,
dreaming of the summer rain.
so shall my
thoughts be of
sugar coated memories
or harsh moments
one is fading
soon
or later
it's going to be to late.
than you'll find
help
from fire
...and on this mountain we'll love for the heavens to shimmer

if you happen to be a billionaire...
