Earthly Playground

silly sandbox games delight
building, destroying, building
learning to persevere
the slide calling out
to climb towards the sky
exhilarating plunge
followed by climb again
set a goal, ride a goal
set another
teeter totters teaching
balance like scales of justice
rough ride if the burden
isn’t spread out
swings teasing with a near
attainable flight
one push lending heaven
merry-go-round
jump on quick
with speeds that create
a new level of force
hold on tight
sometimes life gets dizzy
causes stumbles
sit down and regroup
recess isn’t over
