Desert Fence

Desert fence

Southern Arizona

Can a chain link fence
keep desert sands from shifting
north or east or west?

  10. Sylvia Kirkwood

    Yep, it can try, but I don’t think it will work! What beautiful endless skies and a beautiful capture!! Have a great weekend!

  11. You’re always finding amazing barbed wire shots!

  12. Great haiku MMT. It’s wonderfully crafted and goes well with the photo. Thank you for sharing.

  13. Chains and wire are as
    Nought to wind and shifting sands;
    They are to rip flesh.


  14. That’s a great shot of barbed wire fence going into infinity –

  15. Great thought! Clever as usual!

  16. wonderful photo.. I like the perspective.

    Visiting from SkyWatch Friday… Festive Sky

  17. Interesting perspective 🙂

  18. Beautiful photograph, love the words.

  19. That is a very forbidding fence, but the landscape helps soften it…and the words, as always, are so fitting.

  20. I doubt it, but I’m sure it would give a great effort!

  21. Love the perspective. I’m inclined to wonder: what is a chain link fence guarding in a desert? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  22. Thought provoking!!! Have a grand day!

  23. i like this one a lot!

  24. Love the reference here. When I saw the photo, before I read the haiku, I was thinking of what it was designed for, to keep something in, or to keep something out. I realized that the sands as well as many creations, the crawlers and winged ones, can be neither. Cool!


  25. you always ask the unanswerable…Haiku Master, you are. ♥♥

  26. This fence means business! Nice shot

  27. Great photo – I’m so in love with your fences-pictures! The haiku is again stunning!

  28. Desert sands will go where they will, no doubt! Great photo. great concept!

  29. wonderful haiku posing many metaphysical questions ~ Great photo ~ happy weekend ~ (A Creative Harbor) on Blogger

  30. hmmm..pondering my answer…
    I am amused by this thought.
    and love this photo!!

  31. Maybe not all will make it through… but many will and run free beneath the vast sky in any direction they want!

  32. Love the perspective and depth of field on this shot!

  33. Wow, beautifully captured!

  34. this is freedom and jail in one picture for me. Awesome shots. Gives one some thought!

  35. I love your haiku and like Lea’s answer.
