The World Falls Away

Dusk, Devils Marbles, Northern Territory, Australia
I stand still
Losing my balance
As the world falls away
Beneath my feet

Eroding, eroding, eroding
All which had supported me
Until I am perched
On a pinnacle

Teetering, teetering, teetering
No firm ground to stand upon
I breathe, deeply
Then exhale

Breathe in, breathe out, breathe
Find my center
Find my balance
‘Til the world below’s made stable

Devils Marbles
Northern Territory, Australia
