#NaPoWriMo Haiku of Life 1977 and 1978
Watching you struggle
your mum didn't know how to say
you were colourblind.
(I was around 5 when I had to do a test which proved
me colourblind and it took my mother days to explain to
me I was different)
Step in my footsteps
your father barked walking us
to school in the snow.
(Another early memory – 1978 was a terrible winter with my dad unable to get to work,
walked us to school in the heavy snow)
