#Small Stone for Jan. 8 2014

badge-14-300x300For January 8th, A Year with Rilke selection is titled Balance. That “we” are not in balance with the tree of life, nor with the seasons.

I thought of my own experience with balance. How I lose focus on other things I need to do when I am on the computer for hours, even what this lack of physical movement does to my body’s balance. Here is my small stone for January 8. All my small stones are first drafts and first impressions:

Jan. 8, 2014

Why am I out of step
with my own life?

I run to catch up,
then slow to the speed
of moving backward.

If I am hot,
I long for cool, then
shiver in the wind.

On one foot,
I wobble, untethered
