Discontented mind losing count of deep breaths, three-plus hours past noon:
One person seeking equilibrium amidst unevenness, imbalance.
Upward arched arms making one imperfect circle below
Five offset, yet perfectly steadfast, rings linking five
Frightfully unstable, Lonely Planet co-inhabitants:
Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, Oceania.
Three trees: one tall, one twiggy -
Contented mind losing count.
