The Perfect Spin

Go ahead
give it a twist
enjoy the symmetry
the beauty
the balance
this pirouette on the head of a pin

Soon enough it will begin to wobble
it always does
a flaw somewhere
some small imperfection
an unnoticed wrinkle
a shift in the breeze
something to move it off center
out of balance and
into chaos

Enjoy the moment
this tiny perfect moment
do not try to capture it
or contain it
or hold it
let it run
experience it as it is

Perfection
like beauty is transitory
often fleeting
even illusory
it may not come again
for a long long time
