Feathered Sky


If you were erased,
the fence would have no shelter,
feathered sky of blue.

  1. This reminds me of my first poem. My mother said that she saw ,the 4 year old me, sitting on the swing set looking at the sky. We lived in a hilly area and the sun came up beyond those hills. I walked into the house and reported…”The trees hold the sun while the clouds have fun.” It was really cool that she remember that and told me. 🙂

  2. I like that idea of the sky being a shelter for the fence–never thought of it that way.

  3. Nice picture, lovely colors:)

  23. Oh, I always love an extra generous slice of sky. Really, I’m more greedy for big hunks of blue sky than for big hunks of pie!

  24. Just left a comment and it flew into that gorgeous blue sky. What I said was WOW! Not only did the beauty of the photo with its complex simplicity grab me, the words were even moreso. A zen koan of sorts. Read it over and over.

  25. What a fun and beautiful shot – the perspective is wonderfully unique!

  26. Beautiful shot! Love the blue sky and clouds over the fence!

  27. i like to think we all give each other shelter.
    i love the idea of it being the colour of this impossibly blue sky.
