BrewNSpew Café February 11/2019

Word/expression of the week – off-kilter – (adjective and adverb) – not in perfect balance, not in the usual, expected, or correct condition or state. Unconventional or eccentric. Synonyms – bizarre, cranky, crazy, curious, funny, kinky, outlandish, quaint, screwy, wacky, weird.

Do you ever feel that life is off-kilter?

The balance and harmony that was there

Has been offset by adding too much of this and that

Here and there, making the whole equation lopsided

Leaning towards the material, we often ignore the spiritual

In nurturing our bodies we many a time forget to feed

The starving soul, which can only be nurtured by us

Deep thinking and reflection is needed, some time

Set aside to address the issues that are disturbing

Our peace of mind has to be carved from the

Humdrum of our busy life otherwise the soul

Shrivels and hides in a cocoon weaved by

Our indifference and apathy to its fate

And I do think that life is off-kilter

Written in response to;

  1. This is delightful, Sadje, and so true, IMO. Family values are threatened because of abuse, infidelity, etc. Spiritualism seems to be lost while materialism is growing out of control. You’re right when you say deep thinking and reflection is needed. What is happening today is deeply concerning.

    Your thoughts are so eloquently penned. I love this piece and thank you so much for joining in the challenge.
