A Marriage of Hemsipheres

we come from separate hemispheres
you and I,
I viewing the world as diluted watercolor
you a ledger in balance --

out of balance is where we find commitment
meeting congenially under sheets of a finer texture
you marking as payment of debt incurred
I as a stain on canvass

still the world revolves;



  1. our differences make us all the more interesting...each bringing a different perspective to the mosaic...

  2. bkm this was wonderful and hit home. Similar to your poem we joke in my house that I am a cloud and my misses the dirt that keeps me grounded. The story goes much further but I connected to this instantly. She is the ledger and I the watercolor. I may have to show this to her just prove we are not the only ones lol. Thank you for sharing.

  3. wonderful and unique piece. I am so glad to have found you and the gifts you share of your writing. I find you to be quite inspiring as well as I immensely enjoy each piece.

  4. Beautiful piece, the idea of viewing the world as a diluted watercolour especially!

  5. Dear bkm: Beautiful! An Artist personality versus the business personae. "Out of balance" is wonderful word play. Clearly the universe does not care. Points well taken. Bravo!

  6. Thank you all Robert, Tammie,Menina and Chiccoreal for your beautiful comments....blessings...bkm

  7. Thank you all for your lovely comments....bkm

  8. your poem is represented now as promised,
    Happy Wednesday!

  9. Oh. This is layered, and thought-provoking and what impresses me especially is that you've done all you've done here in so short a space.

    Interesting that, later, you've written about yin and yang. I look forward to more. I hope that you won't mind if I add you to my bog list at Word Garden.

  10. Thank you all ---

    Fireblossom - I am so happy you found this piece thought is one of my favorites...bkm
