Haiku Friday - Ode to the Box House

O beautiful box

turned into a house by my

big brother with love.


I still remember

it fondly, all the different

places it became.


Playhouse, hospital

school, library, vet office,

space shuttle, hotel.


We need to bring back

toys without batteries, so

kids can work their minds.

Awesome haiku, hon! Thanks!

I love this, and it is so very true that a box plus imagination can be so much fun! I miss having that kind of imagination to transform something so simple and humble into a stately castle or whatever I wanted it to be. Great haiku, and cute picture, too - deluxe box, that one! :)

My husband would love that because we'd have to buy something like a huge plasma television just to get the big box. LOL!!
