Sing out, if you dare,
in tangled, twisted rhythms,
tortured fencing wire!

  1. Nice haiku. Is the wire in the shape of a heart or the middle finger? It doesn’t matter.

  2. It does look twisted and tortured….and looking up for salvation!

  3. Depicts the picture of Rebellion! Nice Imagery.

  4. Fascinating image with the wild twists and turns of wire silhouetted against a glorious sky!

  5. What a lovely bit of wire, with a sunset background! I love it!

  6. As usual a wonderful thought captured in words and picture


    Here’s the one I wrote for you:


    Is an art

  8. Unusual picture….works perfectly with haiku…tortured and twisted…good one

  9. wow! stunning picture & words.
    it looks like the wire is lifting a finger in defiance. 🙂

  10. Perfect haiku for composition in your photo.

    Regards and best wishes

  11. Interesting photo, very nice 🙂

  12. I’m confused, I thought I’d already visited your site for skywatch this week
    must have hit the wrong post from last week…..

  13. Ouch ouch ouch – I rather look at the sky behind 😉 – Not sure I can call it beautiful? – anyhow good image


  14. The big and the small, the close and the far, coupled with the perfect words. Great job on this post.

  15. At first I thought you had scribbled on your own picture–then I realized it was wire.

  16. Fencing wire, I wouldn’t have guessed. I thought it would be modern art, while looking at the thumbnail photo.
    Great shot!

    Very nice photo!

  18. Another great find! Looks like one of those balloons twisted into the form of a dog howling at the sky.

  19. It does look tortured! Great haiku to match.

  20. another perfect one!
