A Field Of Hay Bales

Rating: 5.0

The big round hay bales
That lie across the farm field
Like small fortresses
Remind me of my childhood
And the game of hide and seek.

Yes! ! ! I always flinch when I see round bales! I was accustomed to rectangular hay bales that were si easy to break into meal sized flakes for the different horses. I look at those round bales and my head tilts and my mind goes round and round on how to divide that monster up. Now you have given me something pleasant to think about! ! ! Thank you! ! ! 10++ and onto my fav list! ! !

It's nostalgic to dig out the childhood enjoyments. The imagery you have created to express it is appreciable. Hay bales deserve a prime place among the properties made use of as a support of games, especially hide and seek. Effective imagery. Superb.
