Memories of childhood fun;
Great joy recaptured!
Emma H, age 26, 24/07/2017
I love the nostalgia of rediscovering a childhood toy, game or book and sparing a moment to reminisce.
Photo taken in the Lego shop in Disneyland Paris a few years ago whilst holidaying with my sister 🙂 We designed our Lego figures to be the “perfect English gentlemen”…
The pocket of innocence in a person’s life,
When creepy crawlies and slimy, slurpy slugs
Lurk in the depths of dark
Beneath the bed,
And unimaginable horrors capture
Eyes brimming with apprehension, Beth gazed upon her new home. In all honesty, there was very little about it that she thought of as homely. The monochrome façade was sparse and spotless, the curtains in most windows were brusquely drawn, and the monstrous building blocked the midday sun, casting sombre shadows across the driveway. The driver ushered her in and Beth gripped Mr. Teddy tighter to her chest as she stepped across the threshold, the humungous doorway swallowing her small, trembling figure.
In the cavernous entrance hall stood a tall woman, dressed in black cotton, light grey hair neatly coiffed. Beth could make out her piercing blue eyes even through the gloom. They were the eyes of someone you daren’t cross.
Once upon a time, when I was a little girl,
Splashes of colour painted over the world,
With lands and people of my own creation,
Swept up in a surge of imagination.
