Miracle Seat

A wonderful swingset I found

The miracles of life
Coming once in a blue moon
Forever a moment
Forever a piece of time
Nestled in a harmonious state
Escaping the clutches of death
That bind men to mortal status
Ordinary earth dwellings
When the magic fills the air
And Cinderella has until twelve
To live the impossible dream
Go and find the miracle seat
That wisks you away to
Never, never land

But these are just
Empty promises


WPC: Half and Half

SwingsetHere is a little secluded spot in my neighborhood where one can go to relax or blow off some steam. It’s very peaceful, especially this swingset that is usually empty and reminds me of a creepy scene in a horror movie. I chose this spot for this week’s photo challenge because of the nice backdrop of evergreen (or spruce?) trees and the natural layering involved with the sand and the sky – actually that’s not sand but millions of wood chips that I remember scraping my hands and knees up pretty badly on the elementary playground many years back.Swingset 2After living in this mobile home community for nearly five years, I’ve got to say that this area of innocence has held up pretty good. The place is very good about keeping vandalism away and the people living here don’t cause much trouble (I’ve only seen the cops come by maybe two times). This playground was the sight of another picture I took for Photography 101 last year, which was a smash hit for me and everyone else.
