Hopscotch in the rain

You don’t see chalk on the pavement much anymore.

My daughters used to do it outside our house and up the street with the neighbours’ children.

I was walking to school the other day to pick my daughters up when I saw some lovely pastel chalk drawings on the pavement and it took me back to when I was a kid.

So I wrote a haiku about it.

As you do.

 

Hopscotch in the rain.

 

Chalk on the pavement;

Hopscotch memories fade, in

Fine summer drizzle.

  1. I grew up in an area without sidewalks and as a child I wished so much for them for roller skating and hopscotch, two things I read about in books but we weren’t able to play.

  2. Ah, this brings me back, Dave. Happy times!

  3. Such a beautiful image.
    Where did you get it Dave?

    Cheers,
