Chestnut Memories

Burst of colours, falling leaves and chestnuts

Bringing pensive mood and memories long forgotten

An old black and white photograph of an elderly lady

Holding an infant in her arms, the only memory of grandma

Seeing a chestnut brings this photograph to my mind

More memories come – running around and wildly

Kicking leaves into the air and looking for chestnuts

Gathering full bags of them to take home to play with

Later at home warmed by hot tea and enjoying sweets

Making a zoo full of chestnut animals – giraffe, lion, zebra…

On and on goes the list, even new species coming to life

Happily playing with them, creativity unleashed

Lost in the world childlike imagination where

Everything is possible even the most crazy dreams
