Weds poetry prompt: ‘Balancing Act’


Today’s prompt: Write a ‘Coordinated’ poem. [this ended up being the opposite, I guess ;-)]

Balancing Act

It must be my bleary eyes
And my ever-shaking hands
That cause balance to elude me
And fall over and over again.

So many stand upright
Where I always stumble,
Those co-ordinated chaps
Who have clocked it all.

A clumsy one I may be,
But my intent is inside
This bumbling old body
That tries its very best.

So allow me to stop a second,
After the spins and shakes,
And common sense may conquer
This creaky coating of mine.
