Swing

Standard

maple leaves
wiggle in the rain
an empty swing

For years this tree swing swayed back and forth in the summer breeze. However, I never once saw anyone actually swinging on it. It always made me wonder if it was still in use or just a relic left over from a childhood long gone. This past summer, I walked the familiar route into town and found the tree swing was gone. Now, it’s a story I’ll never know.

westward breeze
wishes tremble
almost set free
