Shortcut Through the Wire

Discarded fence

Discarded fence, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

stumbling toward sunrise
parched and panting all the way
shortcut through the wire

  8. That is so awesome!! I love the barbed wire against the sunrise!!!

  9. Nice pic´s! I was in Arizona last year and your colour is so typical I think!

  10. What a beautiful shot. Each sets the other off.

    Greetings from Norway

  12. Beautiful shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  13. Shortcut indeed. Making our way through to what we need can sometimes be a rough passage, but as you so aptly describe, the parching inside that drives us. I see a lot of meaning and teaching here today as well as the beautiful haiku and photo.


  14. that’s a terrific shot…

  15. Great shot, and the haiku is really fitting.

  16. Looks painful – some shortcuts.

  17. I’m going through that one space… you know the one in the middle…

  18. and what were you doing up all night???

  19. Doen’t look like an easy way to go! I love the contrast of the soft hues of sunrise and the sharp thorns of the wire fence….

  20. Shortcuts are seldom the best way…your haiku always make me think♥

  21. So many beautiful contrasts here…the striated sky against the rounds of barbed wire…


  22. Oh but what a gorgeous scene to stumble towards!

  23. ‘stumbling toward sunrise ‘ ~ very contemplative haiku ~ (A Creative Harbor) on blogger

  24. Be careful. I’ll say a prayer.

  25. The sunset is beautiful through the barbed wire!

  26. Sometimes a shortcut is painful, but the best way? Seems so at times. I fear that I may interpret your poetry more darkly than you intend. Sorry! And , as always, your photos complements your words so well.

  27. Perfect picture highlighting the contrasts out on the desert! That beautiful sky and the rusting remnants of people who couldn’t quite make it out there (at least this is what I’m imagining)
