TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge

An ancient relative of mine apparently. An ancient album is a treasure trove of personalities of another age.

Theme for the week: Photograph

Most of us have had a photo taken, taken a photo or just have photos in frames, albums or boxes around the house. Share a haiku that is inspired by photos.

Here is my contribution for the week.

That smiled with my eyes

These two were married in Gold Rush Melbourne in the late 1800s. I aspire to possess my ancient relatives impressive bushman's beard.

If you would like to participate in TJ’s Household Haiku challenge then you can use any aspect of the household item for an inspiration. “Photograph” could be the photo itself, its subject, the memories it inspires, where it came from, or what it is displayed in…be creative! It does not have to be an old or perfect photo…just whatever is about at home

If you are participating please write your a post on your own blog and add your contribution as a link to your post in the comment section here and add “TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge” to your tag list on your own post so others can find you! Just click on the speech bubble at the end of this post to access comments.

If you have an idea for a household object for next time let me know and I will acknowledge you in the next post if your idea is chosen.

About the album: The photos are taken from an old leather bound Victorian photo album and is filled with photos of family members from long ago. The beards and moustaches are very impressive, as are the ladies crinolines and hairstyles. Many of the pages have a single space for a photo that features one of Shakespeare’s plays as a title. I always particularly liked the one of the “Merry Wives of Windsor” pictured below.
