Elemental Simplicity

Elemental Simplicity

Vanilla shell malleable, emotional 
vibration streaking color across 
calm surface retreating below.  
Control regained, thoughts 
calmed, creamy surface rising, 
enclosing inner orb 
smooth unbroken shell.  
Elemental simplicity elegantly 
maintained, complete unto itself.  
Content upon pedestal, existence enough.

The war between ambition and contentment is a constant, if it wasn’t civilization would not have evolved and the stars would be out of reach. The yearning for more, channeled toward positive goals, can overcome limitations making nothing impossible.
