A Balance of Truth

…like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land. — from Isaiah 32:2

Let us put to sleep our distress,

stow our woes in sunken chests,

hide away our sorrows,

push down the unrest

of our weary souls,

not in denial of a difficult world,

but to shift the ballast

of our passion and joy —

we must let the beautiful

out to breathe even when

the whole world fades to a fallow

gray, hold to the balance of truth —

there is light where there is shadow,

extol the blessings of each day.

—C.L. Fisher, January 2022
