I like the last line - mysterious bounce - how true is that

That's wonderful. And the one meaning of parallel I didn't think of

sounds painful.

I love that you didn't use any of the words in the middle line, and in fact you used only two words to fill up those seven syllables. It's almost like getting a bingo in Scrabble. :-)

I'm imagining him bouncing on the bars, with the give and take of the wood.

the parallel bars have never ceased to amaze me.. the physical endurance it takes to do what they do... you have described it perfectly.. and the photo is so good...

You're getting to be such a haiku 'pro'! This is great.
They DO always bounce at the end, just as you said.

Very nice use of the prompts.

It's a pity the haiku doesn't have space and time for the rhythm of the flowing movements, the exchange of pars and positions.

Yet, this haiku gives me the rhythm.
