Living on Barbed Wire: For Debbie



Freedom

there’s freedom ahead
freedom beyond the barbed wire
freedom there for all

Be a Wire Cutter

Barbs and wires in the way
Restricting movement
Blocking the way forward
But look ahead
Look beyond
Be a wire cutter
And touch the future

Living on Barbed Wire

Flaking
Sharp
Keeping in things in
And out out
Rusted
Weathered
Unwelcoming
Yet still a place to rest
Those weary wings

To the Wire

In the right light
Even the barbed wire
Has a unique beauty

It’s Six Word Saturday once again. This week, I’m posting something different, inspired by Debbie’s post. I put together a quick picture to match the post, and then quickly threw together the words to match the picture.

And before you say it… Six Word Saturday refers to the title of the post only… the content can be millions of words long if required! Visit Debbie’s post for more six words.

    Brilliant! You’ve captured many of my thoughts as I’ve looked at fences this year. Lenny of angles there to get my project flowing.
    Many thanks Tom

    A farmers friend. Which side of the post is it stapled to? …depends on if you are fencing something in or fencing things out. Good one Mr. Tom.

          Outside the post (from the view inside the field) keeps things out? My head’s hurting now…

    yes…like a cow pressing on the line. If on the wrong side they can pop the staple out. Now if you have goats or sheep this fence won’t do at all.

      Now with cows, that makes sense!

        Perhaps I should have said ‘well poemed’, Tom 🙂

          No, it’s fine, Jo… I know what you meant! 😄 I usually write rhymes, but today the idea just stayed away!

    We all need to be wire cutters in these unprecedented times. To cut through to the freedom beyond, but also to see there is beauty to be found in the darkest of places…if you look beyond the barbs…😊

      Indeed, Icewolf. Sometimes, just seeing beyond is a great help!
