I like the first one a lot--major nostalgia points :)
The higher one went, the louder the laughter!! :)
What a philosophical and poignant haiku.
Excellent...I could relate with both...thank you...have often got hit by pendulum of life...the first one..well we appeared to be on the same page when we wrote...http://rameshsood.blogspot.in/2013/07/ah-swinging-childhoodhaiku.html#comment-formRS
Oh great haiku I love what you did here with the carefree image of childhood in contrast to the pressures and worries of adulthood
Very well said Cosmo, The carefree childhood has swung by to make way for changing times, loved both the Haiku :)
I especially like the first one. Nice.
I especially like the 'karmic' resonance of the second haiku.xxx
The 'pendulum' did knock me down once!! :) The first one is fun and the second haiku is so meaningful!!
Oh, I love the first one. Beautiful. And yes..that pendulum can hit us hard..poignant one!!
