You see-sawed.

I teeter-tottered.

You blew bubbles.

I spun pinwheels.

You childlike.

Me childish.

The space

between us

equaled the

length from


seat to seat.

Our children

spanned the

distance in the

wink of a smile.

Mine see-saw.

Yours teeter-totter.

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

    Oh my but the meanings within this one……such thoughts left for me to ponder……..psychological implications of one being on the teeter totter side…..

      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.
