Paradigm


Paradigm
Status Quo                                      

Safe reason
Jealously protected
The boundaries,
A svelte loop of opinion
Juxtaposed reason
Walling 
Stone by stone
Sheltered
on one side.
Exposed on the other
Until the wall
Topples down

  6. Ann, there was a bit of toppling in my piece this week as well. A fun coincidence!

    I agree with Gina-I loved that passage! Stellar writing, once again!

  7. svelte loops are like that body part, or are they? In some people it is a fat circle.

  11. Love how you set it up and then have it topple down. The weight of imbalance.

  12. The walls must come down, to restore balance. I liked the balance of this piece!
