Forgotten Hands (Minifigure Monday)

Minifigure Monday is a weekly celebration of LEGO® characters. Two weeks ago, I reviewed the amazing Pirates of Barracuda Bay set (click here to read about it). Since then, it continues to inspire my photography and story-telling. This week, the set prompted an exploration of relics built by forgotten hands. It features a nod to the LEGO® Pirates sub-theme, Islanders. These 1990s sets figured prominently in my childhood adventures. Consequently, I was thrilled that Pirates of Barracuda Bay included a nostalgic throwback to those bygone sets. I dug out one of my Islanders Minifigures just for the occasion.

Forgotten Hands

An original LEGO® inspired poem from True North Bricks.

Once placed here by forgotten hands,
Now lying buried in the sands.
A reason we will never know,
A meaning lost eons ago.
If only I could overhear,
All that has transpired here.
How many hands have touched this stone,
As the centuries have flown?
Ravaged by the hands of time,
Crumbled and covered in grime.
I wish there was a way to see,
All that this was meant to be.

Forgotten hands inspired by LEGO Pirates.
This week’s Minifigure Monday was inspired by the Pirates of Barracuda Bay and my childhood Minifigures.
