Haiku, Photo, Sunday Post

For this challenge, I asked for my sons’ help. It has been a long time since either one of them played with toys, apart from Nintendo’s, PC’s, PlayStation, and whatever these gaming wonders are called.

Shooting this photo took me back to my kids’ childhood days. As you can see, there is dust on this poor fellow’s cute head now. But he’s still up there, on the shelves. Too old to play, but too young to say goodbye to echos of their younger days.

Another photo of a toy, but this time a big one: it is a water device and this boy was totally intrigued, absorbed by its mechanism.

Time charges ahead

Waiting for nothing, no one

but the playful ones

  1. Ah, nostalgia. That is one cute zebra.
    The best thing about grandchildren, I think, is that we can all play with abandon again.
