Running Over

No poems about cats, but this one came in while I was running this morning. Maybe it is about cats. I see one, anyway.

Two of Cups


Balance can consist
In one
Hand open,
The other's cup.

I don't know; too newage postery? But that's what you get some days. Also thinking about Rilke's two solitudes. The two cards in the tarot deck are always about balance, but this one is traditionally about love, which has always been for me more a ride than a balance. So it's a card that needs some internal reconciliation. Maybe some friend who gets science has an interesting idea or two about equilibrium and velocity and cool words like that. Feel free to enlighten me.
