finding him
at the park
my inner child

I love this haiku, Paul. This is exactly what it's like to lose one's inhibitions when playing with young children. I'm often at the park with my two little ones and have been wanting to write something like this. You've done it for me!

Thank you Vanessa. I wrote this a couple of years ago after a trip to the park with my children. I have it written on a stone in the study window as a gentle reminder that even the 'OLD' ones can and should have fun.

A loveley haiku Paul. At the end of the day, we are all children at heart.

Thanks Matt. Where would we be without a little fun?
