the juggler

Sculpture: Juggling Life by Darcy J. Sears

tossing, catching
the pieces of life
a dreaded slip
and desperate hands
reaching out
to salvage
what can be
of the circus of life

helplessly watching
those that
hit the ground
the transformation
of the artist
to a clumsy fool
an unforgiving audience
chiding at the failure.

the empty hands
folding in
quivering fingers
the embarrassed eyes
slowly meeting theirs
finding among them one
which has seen
it all before

reaching his soul
lifting him above
this present plight
reassuring, unsaid
with acquired wisdom
trust your hands
once again
and the next juggle
will be alright.
