It’s All About Balance - Poem by Joyce Chelmo

She’s like a long stemmed
crystal glass of crimson whine,
sat on a tabletop and a pebble.
The slightest vibration
and she teeters off balance,
shattered in scarlet pools.

    Rich this poem is very metaphorical, ironically the word 'Whine' is probably
    the center of the poem. It's about a very unstable woman, who whines continuously.

    Hello Joyce,
    I like the image, but your use of 'whine, ' if intentional, destroys the sympathy that we might otherwise have for the subject of your poem. The rest of the imagery works well for me.
