This was the first thing I thought of when I saw Sadje’s picture prompt for her What Do You See challenge this week.

Looks intriguing doesn’t it?
A mouth of parallel teeth or
A piano with upright keys.
The rhythm of your footfall is important.
The swing is unnerving,
The sides unstable.
Nauseous, will you shake uncontrollably?
Perspire with tension and anxiety
For your safety?
Look straight ahead,
Not down to the chasm below.
Keep going to reach the other side
And explore the wonder beyond the green, then
Before dark, are you brave enough
To Face the swing again?
