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

    (((HUGS)))!!! Been there! When you run out of rope make sure you tie a knot on the end and hold on to that! (((HUGS)))!!

  4. Barely…….but still holding on.
    Either that, or you fell off and into a hole, and that is your hair we see popping above the ground!

    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!

    Sometimes holding on “just barely” is doing well! Memories and feelings and longings can really tug hard!

    More swaying creates a better place than barely holding on
