freedom


steel wires bind
but all my thoughts soar
beyond clouds

Oh, how I dislike all those wires that intrude upon my sky. A unique choice of topic to view. Lovely.

When I moved from Florida to Georgia and went house-hunting, one of the things I especially wanted was underground electric! My view is unobstructed by electric poles and wires. I love it!

Oh, I like this one. So tired of hearing people give reasons why they can't soar!

I like the combined image and words. I actually felt a sensation of rising above the limitations of the wires.

Excellent haiga! Love the juxtaposition between the permanence of the steel and the vastness of the sky. Wonderful! JP/deb

Lovely image and poem. Took me soaring with you.

Nice photo and poem. The poem makes me think of the movie, "The Butterfly and the Diving Bell" that I recently watched. No matter what binds or ties us up, we can still send our thoughts to the sky.

Very freeing. It makes me feel as if I'm in prison, but only my body.
