Carpe Diem #26, laughter

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Yesterday our prompt was tears, today I will grant you with the opposite emotion 'laughter'. Another day in Carpe Diem paradise with a lovely prompt. Laughter, the positive energy, to enjoy every day life. Laughter ...

Ah! what a joy

Isn't it a wonderful picture? Children playing with autumn leaves. They enjoy and don't have need for their Nintendo's or Playstations. They are happy and have fun. Enjoy autumn.

This prompt will stay on 'till October 27th 11.59 AM (CET). Our new prompt childhood (given by Mariya Koleva) will be published today around 10.00 PM (CET).

  4. What a happy prompt, Kristjaan! Laughter is good for the soul :) Have a nice weekend!

  5. Is this possible? You have grandchildren? Or is it poetic license?
    I remember playing to see kids doing so today.....

    1. I am really a granddad I have 6 grandchildren, however the kids on the picture aren't my grandchildren.

  6. Wow, you have 6 grandchildren, how wonderful. Lovely cascading haiku of children playing with leaves, the joys of autumn :)

  7. I so loved the images you created. I just played with my grandson in the autumn leaves this past week!!
