I see the sunset.
The trees are blowing, and the leaves are flying.
I’m lying down on a hammock.
My brother is swinging with me
and going back and forth, over and over.
The soft silk of the hammock is like a sheep’s fur.
I’m catching my breath.
I see flowers bloom orange and red
and bricks stacked on top of each other.
My brother is swinging me.
