inspirational tools to create life balance in your everyday



as these days pass
it is as if I am outside of an aquarium
looking in
at my life

there are seahorses
to ride
and shells stackedĀ  in colourful corners
deep emerald kelp that sways

I am being swept
by my own tide
imperfect and beautiful

the future looms unintelligible
above the water
the past holding up the green and blue
fluorescent rocks and sand

I am surrounded
by familiar tidings
and stunning support
and my heart floods with feeling

and yet
I cannot help but wonder
so often
towards the sand

and towards the thought
of taking a seahorse
and you
and riding towards the sky
