A poem written to a friend...

 

That swing, there in the distance

on a slight hill, a short walk away

I've only seen it empty . . .

 

I love to swing!

When I was young, I'd swing on a vine

Flying out over old country roads.

 

 

 

 

 

In the serenity garden at my homeplace

The swing is the first place I seek

Swinging as my eyes wander, my ears enjoy. . .

 

I like to swing high

Seeing how far I can see, yet coming back home

Feeling the cool air, the freedom of flight.

 

Come, let's go swing! I know that you're tired

I'll swing the swing, you can just rest

All you need do, is just touch my hand...

I enjoyed this one....Swings are close to flying. Eli, my 31yr old challenged son ad I swing every weekend at the wooded park.

as i recall, there is a freefall feeling as you swing higher and
higher...a reckless abandon...a momentary freedom from self and
the world below. Thanks for this reminder, Glenda. -gene.

We used to have a boat swing when I was a child. Oh the hours spent sailing the seas over the ravine. Thank you for the great memories, Glenda. Love and best wishes,

Don't we all love swings? Something about them has a spiritual quality, especially in our memories of them... good write. lindalaw

...seems to me I've read a poem that reminds me of this, in a book called something like "Out of Body Experiences"... I wish I could remember the exact title and author's name.

I like the extra spaces in this poem-- that's for swinging out-- and then the clumped lines-- that's coming home. --Charlie
