In this photograph taken in 1940, not a banner year in history, a Polish farming couple from Connecticut appears to be enjoying a joke, possibly made by the gentlemen about his pants, which he is hoisting.
It spoke to me, made me write this haiku:
In feast or famine
No matter what life hands us
Laughter lifts the heart
The challenge: Write what the photo says to you. Then post the photo (it’s in the public domain) and the poem on your blog.
