Access or Excess

November PAD Challenge Day 12:  Today’s prompt, write an excess poem http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides/poetry-prompts/2011-november-pad-chapbook-challenge-day-12

Access or Excess

It’s that age-old question:
too much or too little?
Prefer a bit of boundary,
neither too tight nor loose,
like a well-hinged door
one might choose to open,
move through.

Access or excess?
Not enough may cause soul
to hunger in desperation,
while constant egress
may swiftly lead to utter
destruction.

    Ah yes, there is a fine line between too much and too little! Hard to find that balance.

    Want to thank both of you for continuing to visit. The last few days I have spent mostly in bed, trying to stay warm and sleeping as much as possible. My apologies for not visiting in return,

    Elizabeth
