even at six years
Ronovan has given us DARKNESS and DEEP this week in his weekly Haiku Challenge.
Mixing that with our Photo Prompt – FICTION.
My childhood was not always a happy place to be. There is a hint of that in my expression in the photo of me at about 6 years old, that little frown. The photo is in its original 1950s frame.
My Grandad and step-grandmother, Dabbity, provided me with a haven of books, cooking, gardening and needlework, I was always supremely happy when I was with them.
I learnt to read early and loved reading fiction as an escape. Perhaps that is why I hardly ever read fiction nowadays – no need to escape.
These are three favourite books of my childhood: Swiss Family Robinson, Monty Woodpig’s Caravan and Miss Richard’s Mouse
The illustrations in Miss Richard’s Mouse are a bit deep and dark and I remember feeling a bit scared of this book
Please leave your link to your work of FICTION in the comments, we’d love to see them.
