Photo prompt: GAME

A photo taken on Christmas Day. ‘Frustration’, the most popular game with the little ones this year.

Haiku prompt: VAST and CLEAR


vast jumble of games

all plastic and flashing lights

now cleared away – Phew!


“I’m so excited!” Tra la la La!!!!! this is the first week for our 52 week Photo Challenge! You don’t need to do every one of the 52 weeks, just join in when you want to. I like to combine the photo challenge with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge – at first my heart sinks – I think – IMPOSSIBLE – and then somehow it all comes together – “it’s a kinda magic”, bits of songs keep whirling around in my head.

Euphoria has set in now that the whole Christmas thing is over and life can get back to normal. There’s even the promise of a bit of sunshine here today, that makes me very happy!

    • Thank you Denis, you have given me another way of reading this haiku. To clear away the ‘plastic’ and the ‘flashing lights’ of life is a daily practice. πŸ‘β€οΈ


  7. I love ‘Game Night’! Cute haiku. I’m so tempted by this challenge. I’m just terrified to add more on my already full plate, but I’m going to try to do at least a few. πŸ˜‰

  12. This was my favourite game as a child, I still have it in a battered box somewhere!

    • All five grandchildren seemed to like the game, so it might become a family favourite here as well – I’d never seen it before. So happy you have joined us in the challenge and welcome aboard Wild Daffodil, thanks for the follow! ❀


  13. Great to see the first three ideas and maybe more to come. So many different possibilities for game!

  14. That looks like fun. It’s super that the three of us have three completely different takes on one word Game!

    • I know! That’s what I love about this challenge it brings out diversity and nuggets of delight in the glimpses of aspects of us all that might not appear otherwise – I just love it! (If only I had a better zoom lens, I might have been able to get a picture of the pheasant that struts his stuff past my garden most days). Looking forward to ‘Happy’!


  15. Wonderful Haiku Daffy. I see that Frustration has changed its look slightly. I remember playing this as a child πŸ™‚
