you

Every Tuesday, Neeraj challenges folks to respond to a photographic prompt on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. This week is prompt #67: See Saw.

You see-sawed.

I teeter-tottered.

You blew bubbles.

I spun pinwheels.

You childlike.

Me childish.

The space

between us

equaled the

length from

seesawteetertotter

seat to seat.

Our children

spanned the

distance in the

wink of a smile.

Mine see-saw.

Yours teeter-totter.

      Thanks.
      A teeter-totter and pinwheel made me think of childhood, and the motion of each.

      True! I grew up calling it a teeter-totter. Which means I’m on the teeter-totter side.
      You can imagine the psychological impact that has had on me.
