My Wooden Swing

My Wooden Swing

Gently toying with its hanging ropes
the old wooden swing rocked back and forth.
On days it rocked with the mirth of youth
but now it rocks with…the sting of memories…
The worn-out ropes once held my tears
once violently shook with my laughter
Neither rain nor sun could keep me away
from jumping atop my wooden swing.

It was mine, my solace, my wooden swing.

But now i'm older, and it stands alone
melancholy draping over its ropes
as it swings….
swings with the wind…

Oh, how nostalgic! I love wooden swings and have a couple myself where I sit and ponder old times.

You did very well with this shot. I like the angle you chose and that you shot in b&w, gives it more power. Great job!

I have to confess that I have a certain fetishness about swings –– can't ever resist getting on and swinging away whenever I see one, even if it's in a children's playground ...
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, my friend.
