ANCHORS IN THE WIND

ponderation:
Postcard from Tulum by Todd Wall
Life hangs in the balance.
Calm blue waters.
Pretty pink sand.
Palm trees waving in the breeze.
But life hangs in the balance.
One big burst of wind and
the palm trees will go flying.
Lifted from their roots,
from their anchor to the ground.
One small breeze.
One incidental shift in the wind.
And all could be gone.
The more precarious,
the more precious life becomes.
