inspirational tools to create life balance in your everyday

state in my heart


it’s just you and me kid

alone at the park

in the middle of the day

and those swings invite us in


you giggle so loud

the men

in the tennis court

shout love and then freeze to take it all in


kick off your shoes

whisk through the sand

hang from the big tall bar until you drop

slip and slide all the way down to the ground


a light blue sky with paper doily clouds

silence until

they part just enough

for you to cry “moon!”


when did you get so big

turning half past two

and how do you stay so little

when you create such a state in my heart
