                        atop the high wall...
                        the intertwining of
                        barbed wire & roses

__Nice photo, Frank, and fitting verse! From this site, my feable mind wandered off... into another view.


after rain: ducks watch this river's rise: granite bridge

Again, nifty! _m

you succeed at everything I couldn't really say what it reminded me of but here goes, I have this clear re-collection of living in a castle and being advised by a woman and there roses all over and apple trees, and it reminded me of a time that I remember, though it never happened, the roses , barbed wired so I couldn't live, well you asked lol
Though rare, I relive past lives out of nowhere at all, and this was vivid to me but how could i say when you had a specific theatre in mind, but there you go, that's me

Hi Lorraine:
The person reading a haiku brings us much to the poem as the author. The barbed represents a barrier, at least to humans and animals; however the roses have succeeded in living with it and embracing it. So what you say, 'barbed wired so I couldn't live' is way of interpreting the haiku moment. And your interpretation is as valid as the next person. By contrast the wall in the photo is low and represents an idyllic scene.
Best wishes, Frank...
