Balance – A Poem

Posted: August 30, 2011 in Fitness

10 years old – she ponders

the pound of the pavement with scraped knees and bloody noses

falling again and again on her way to find balance.

irresistibly, the Earth pulls her under until

the day she mastered a twitch of small fibers

she moved just so and her body rebounded – she rewired.

want to learn balance?  just close your eyes.
