An old carousel
Riding peacocks and dragons
Distant memory

The picture depicts an old Victorian carousel in a permanent fun fair at Sutton Park (on the edge of Birmingham), active until the beginning of the early 1960s. The haiku of the week, by John Hinks, is inspired by this carousel, and those days.
