Theme for the week: Games
Most of us have have some sort of game at home. It could be twister, a pack of cards, pick up sticks or a traditional game from another culture. Share a haiku that is inspired by a game you have enjoyed or have around your house.
Here is my contribution for the week.
Remember a time

Welcome to Ruth from Mad Meandering Me for the first time contribution to the post. I love the story and history behind the photograph used as the promt! https://madmeanderingme.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/tjs-household-haiku-challenge-photograph/
About the objects
These are photographs of 3 old board games made in Melbourne around 1910. I found them in a box that was to be thrown out and rescued them. I love the graphics and the colours. The “National Bicycle Game” is a thrilling ride that could see you take a header in a ditch and or go to the police station for riding on the path! The thrills never end. The “Courtship and Matrimony” game is even more exciting with you racing to be the first to tie the knot. I particularly love the square that says “Jilted, go back to the fancy dress ball”
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
