one woman's terrifying and glorious leap off the cliff of midlife
The photo took my breath away...remember the time I was about six or seven and got the swing that looked like thatand all of a sudden realized how highI was...great take on the prompt !PeaceSiggi
Yep, my best swinging memories at age 5. Lovely haiku and awesome image!
I have never witnessed anyone actually do a complete 360 loop on a swing but, I have seen some kids at recess come close. Now, as a teacher, that takes MY breath away! :)
Tom, I was the kid who tried hard to touch the sky. Fearless. When I swung with the youngest, I felt queasy going too high. lol
aint that the truth...the freedom of life on a swing...big breath, breathing that in...
Or six or seven or ten!! :)
I love this one; I could feel the motion of the swing.
Young and free! Lovely haiku.

The swing instills unparalleled sense of freedom and joy, we are lucky to have felt it :)
