Just so slightly

Leaning on the rope

Hands holding on


While thoughts drift and tumble

And heart aches for times and people past

While breeze only just whispers

Past hooded eyes


Twisting softly

Back and forth

Leaning on the rope

Holding on


Swing, Tree

  1. I used to love that. Just barely swinging on a tree, leaning forward and watching the ground move as I thought. I’m sure they were big thoughts for a child!
