Juggling

“What they took for inattentiveness was a miracle of concentration.”

– Toni Morrison, Tar Baby

 

My hands deftly maneuver

Mismatched orbs up, down, up

Ascending with celerity

Descending just the same

Catch. Release. Watch. Drop.

Juggling my way through life.

Throw it up again.

Keep my eye on the ball.

Hands moving with dizzying momentum

I’ve got this.

Breathtaking

Spine-tingling

Overwhelming

Catch. Release.

Repeat.

The end.
