  1. sad to say, that sometimes fences are necessary for peace

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      You’re probably right, but that doesn’t mean we have to like them! (In “Mending Wall,” one of Robert Frost’s characters says, “Good fences make good neighbors.”)

  2. I like the perspective of the shot.

  3. Great shot! It goes on forever.

      I think that’s how some people on our southern border must feel as they look longingly to the north: “That fence goes on forever…”

  4. luv the surprise of Line 3; have a nice Friday

    much love…

  5. A great fence stretching a long way.

  6. Great phrase to add to this image….. my initial thought was KEEP OUT

    You put it so much better

  7. Ah, fences…always making me look for the gateway.
    Happy Friday !

  8. To find those small holes… and slip through… myths become legends.

  9. birds know no borders.

  10. This fence reminds me of the Rabbit Proof Fence in the movie by the same name. Love the wrens dismissing the notes!

  11. ‘wrens’ are smarter than we are ~ thought provoking haiku and lovely photo ~ carol, xx

  12. This fencing gets its message across quite well…..DO NOT ENTER.

  13. The wrens, it seems, are wiser than the fence builders! ‘Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, that wants it down,’

  14. Nice fence shot and interesting comment conversation. 🙂

  15. Fences reveal the ugliness of mankind. We like to think our lives are without boundaries but our world is made up of them.

  16. Wrens and other such critters will be alive long after we and our fences have worn ourselves away..

  17. Robert Frost’s line comes to mind: “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.” Interesting perspective in the photo.

  18. beautiful commentary on freedom.

  19. I really like the perspective in this photo and the poem is excellent. The variety of emotions stirred by the image of the fence was eye opening. Some protected, some trapped, and some inspired to fly over.

  20. The wren never got the memo…

  21. Fences sometimes keep bad things out….

  22. I like your take on the prompt. well done!
