Poem: Balancing Life


I teeter in one foggy moment.

The waves come on either side.

I tell myself to widen my stance,

Straighten my spine.

I imagine myself

To be a pile of rocks,

Different shapes and sizes,

One stacked upon another,

Precarious and unsure

Yet connected and balanced

That never tumble,

Never fall.


Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
