127/365 Shutter release challenge




An old photograph in my hand
memories from childhood days
flicker like an old silent movie.

Days spent playing in the hills
fishing with worm and hook
adventure knew no bounds

Chasing butterflies over meadow
building tree houses in the sky
watching birds soaring high

Granddad rounding up the flock
Darkie answers his every call
Crouched down low moving to and fro

Blanket of snow covers the hill
time to play enjoy the thrill
Sledging and sliding down that hill

Now an old man with tear on cheek
not from sadness for times gone
but from the happiness of life.

Thank you for viewing
