Theme: Yearning



The swing waits…

Tempting luring alluring

I follow the child in me and place myself on it to swing

Clutching the chains of the here and now

My feet go back to go forward

Like an arrow that’s pulled back only to rush forth

My heart braves itself for the excitement ahead

The journey begins…seems to move between earth and eternity

The winds caressing me in my flight of ecstasy

To and fro...the swing of life moves

My heart wishes for more…searches for more

Touching the sky with my toes seems so real

But back I am

The chains my hands clutch tighten

And my toes touch the earth

As Robert Frost says

It was “good both coming and going back”

I leave the swing and walk towards the present

Searching and trying to know to where I belong

I turn around…to see the swing

Tempting luring…alluring

The swing waits

To move me between  earth and eternity…!
