Openings 51 ~ A gate

A resting gate, no longer working, but fascinating just the same. Part of a matching pair, the spoked wheel is an integral part of the gate. It was the first time I came across gates like that.

I wonder what stories it could tell of…

  • The old man who rested on it while checking and counting the sheep.
  • The young girls swinging while singing rhyming songs.
  • The lads testing their climbing and jumping skills.
  • The old woman rubbing her hand upon the spokes remembering that first kiss. The kiss that lasted fifty years, but now was no more.
