Picket Fences – A Haiku

Instead of the wood

Focus on the space between

That is where hope lives

This haiku was written for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #173 – Fences. There has been lots of talk about fences and other barriers being built to keep “other people” out. But, as Patrick’s poem alluded to, it also keeps us in. Unless we go through (or over or under or around) the fence, we would never know who or what is on the other side and whether we like them or not.But no matter which side of the fence you might be on, I bet you always look through the spaces between.
