This week’s FWF prompt is a time and place scenario:

You are in the woods and you stumble across a tin box sticking up out of the ground.
You dig it up to find…

????????????????????????????

Just you and me, we thought!

A walk in the woods
hand in hand
kicking up leaves
like they were sand

Ouch! That hurt!
toes quickly rebound
something metal
buried in the ground

Let’s see! Let’s see!
what’s your pleasure?
we’ll surely share
if a treasure

Carefully lifting
a corner exposed
my favorite lunch box
right under my nose

How did it get here?
this just can’t be
then a rustle
from a nearby tree

We turned
together in time
just as my brother
begin to chime

Gotcha! Gotcha!
but surprise ain’t over
look inside
it’s not stinking clover

Laughter reigned
heartily as can be
peanut butter and jelly
a picnic for us three

[Personal Note: After a day in the hospital with my husband, I had to make this humorous. Enough seriousness for one day. He is on the road to recovery!]
