Wind Chimes

Wind Chimes

AsI looked out my kitchen window I watched the sun fight back the rolling fog from the lake, the swingset once full of life from my children sat rusting and waiting for the wind to catch a swing. I dont know if a man can relate but oh those days went by too quick for me.

A mystical image and description. Lol Amanda's comment. I want to know how you got your arm to reach as far as the swing while holding the cable release with the other hand..Lol! The swings looks so forlorn. Viv
