For We Write Poems poetry prompt: Safe Place
Knowing life is a series of risks,
stepping out to take a chance
to dance with all those possibilities.
Yet, constantly seeking safe place,
to relax, allow muscles to become
almost liquid, instead of stiffly alert.
Arms out-flung, seeking balance
of fine line, where one must be cautiously
willing to make oneself vulnerable.
