One thin strand

Discarded barbed wire, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

rusting barbed-wire strand
snaking through the wilderness—
an absent fence post

  1. COOL photo, which sparked an intriguing haiku.

  2. There are so many stories lying around in your desert, aren’t there? And probably more than a few snakes too!! Is that a broken chair in the back round?

  3. Loved that you changed the meaning with a single additional word-“post”-an excellent Haiku arousing curiosity in the reader’s mind:-)

  4. I love the barbed wire shots a great contrast with the desert
    great verse

  5. What a beautiful composed haiku MMT and that photo is gorgeous.

  7. A rusted barbed wire, a witness to many happenings in the wild. Nice write MMT!


  8. Your haiku works without the photo…it’s so vivid.

  9. Wow. That was simply superb,MMT!

  10. An abandoned guardian, gone dangerous in its solitude.

  11. This is wonderful, and makes it sound like it’s moving. I love it.
