What are you seeking
as you peer through the fencing—
a star for your tongue?

  1. This haiku takes me right back to my childhood… I can almost smell the big, warm cows that came to the fence… thank you for a lovely memory!

  2. this photo is like one of mine too… here outside my window, as I have now moved to the wild and wooly country!! ~star for my tongue~ great line!

  3. That haiku is so evocative! I also love the image of a star for my tongue!

  4. You just pop out these haikus each day…it is so hard for me. Love the one your wrote this time….for some reason “star on your tongue” makes me think of the time when I was a child and an older girl got me to put my tongue on the bottom of an ice tray. OUCH!!! The blue on the other side of this fence is just so pretty. genie

  5. I seek
    athought for my brain
    and a joy for my eyes.

  6. Beautiful..one starts thinking..and wondering.. good one…MMT..

  7. That is a gorgeous blue sky

  8. Don’t fence me in or out…

  9. one time i was in the country and touched a fence…not knowing there was such a thing as an electric fence. ouch

  10. Great shot, I was waiting for the cattle to come over the hill. Love your words too.

  11. I love all the fences you post, but when I thought of star in my tongue, I said ouch. Just a gut reaction. Love your photo and words.

  12. I guess that’s the perspective a child might have! Nice clear blue skies! Thanks for your lovely comments at mine!

  13. i have been outside
    all day avoiding fences
    still smitten with stars

  14. Blue sky looks soothing with that brightness on the horizon. Love the view through the fence. I think I sense cows nearby.
    Thanks for your thoughts and concerns for me the past few weeks. Things are getting better, on the Creator’s time schedule. I appreciate your friendship.


  15. Grass look greener on the other side and it is but natural to seek it!! Ouch the stars are spiky!!

  16. Love the haiku and the shot is amazing. I like the contrast in colors beyond the fence.

  17. This is a great shot, beautiful in all it’s simplicity, barbed wire and all!
