twanging from a fence
the music of endurance—
this old banjo string

  1. Love that eroded but hanging in there wire; adds a great patina to the haiku.

  2. Another great image..

  3. ART–simply ART!



  4. Very intriguing, although this thick wire looks far more off-putting to me than a banjo string. I would not want that digging into my skin when I hopped the fence of my childhood.

  5. very striking image.

  6. The wind plays music
    The taught string elicits notes
    In what key is this?

    I love the possibilities and thoughts that this image and words give me. Nice job!


  7. In Sydney once, at the art museum, I watched the two artists demonstrate how they made the CD “Great Fences of Australia.” Sometimes they played the wire fence with a violin bow. I even bought a copy for an American farmer friend. The CD came packaged with barbed wire.
    The music is quite amazing.

  8. Like your Aussie music…lot of uses for barbed wire!
