Even Barbed Fences


Even barbed fences
cannot stop the transition
from darkness to light.

  6. Wonderful picture and such true words in your haiku.

  7. this looks nice against that sky.

  8. Congratulations! You’ve even made a barbed-wire fence look beautiful!

  9. Hi MMT! I saw that you linked up over at Haiku My Heart, so I came over 🙂 What a cool concept for a haiku. And, it meshes with the photo really well!

  10. That’s a beautiful sky. Terrific colours.

  11. So simple and beautiful. Love the soft pastels of the sky against the tough barbed wire.

  12. Only you could link barbed wire and sunsets. Great job.

  13. They may not be able to stop the transition from dark to light, but they certainly deter me from getting to close. Beautiful shot with vibrant color. Lovely shot this week. genie

  14. Nice words to go with that amazing sky/barbed wire shot.

  15. really… nothing can ever stop nature’s wonder.

  16. I have a thing for barb wire and always take a picture when I get a chance. I also have a thing for sunrises and sunsets so to see the two togethers is stunning

  17. Even fences are beautiful! Have a great weekend – Perleslottet

  18. what a marvelous sky! 🙂

  19. nice 😉


  20. That sunset is so beautiful, I almost forgot about the barbed wire! What a glorious shot!

  21. Beautiful sky and a perfect haiku

  22. No doubt a fantastic and beautiful photo. This haiku is one of your best to me. The idea of the purpose of the fence and its match with nature. Fantastic!

    Much Peace

  23. Nature is a powerful thing! Beautiful sky♥♥♥

  24. You did it again MMT, what a wonderful photo of the sunset accompanied with the haiku it makes a wonderful haiga.


  25. Very deep! Image equally exquisite.

  26. {{ even the sharpness
    cannot pierce
    sky }}

  27. So much packed into this haiga. Somehow I got this collaged image of a mid-century patent for barbed wire and a Bierstadt painting of a big sky. Wow..

  28. Beautiful shot of the transition. I love how your haiku fits so perfectly.

  29. I love the silhouettes of the barbed fences as a great contrast with the friendly, colourful sky.
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

  30. Really well done!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  31. Now this is a beautiful picture!

  32. OMG! The colours are gorgeous. I think you did a good job finding this opportunity because the barbed wire speaks volumns.

  33. Beautiful photograph! Perfect complimentary haiku! Love it!

  34. So beautiful….

    Visiting for RT-2- hope you can stop by:)


  35. Gorgeous. Love the contrast of the barbed wire against the softness of the sky.

  36. And your beautiful haiku, laid like an offering before the photo, is spot-on true.

  37. WOW! THIS is something BEAUTIFUL!!

  38. I’m going to stand upon one of those tiny, sharp points, and dive into the fire of that sky… between the dark and the light…

  39. A glorieus picture and haiku!

  40. What a gorgeous sky….it is out of this world. Such a contrast with the barbed wire. This is a wonderful capture. Nothing stops the transition from light to dark and visa versa. genie

  41. Beautiful… a transition that I can sigh and relax into, barbed wire notwithstanding
