Openings

by John S

The picket fence between me
and the road blends and
culminates with symmetry of

scenery. Not a barrier like
doors – those of different
colors and woodgrains – openings
with stone thresholds, inviting
and structurally restrained.
Fences with alternating slat/space
continuums – so observation is not completely obscured
but the breach of us and them is there.
I focus on the panels and their monochromaticity,
accompanied by sun-glare and
it makes me move to the open space.
Here are changing things –
blades of sawgrass moving,
birds that appear and disappear
while rolling in the sky,
the maundering of a single
cloud. My mind follows.

  1. Nice rhythm – write John 🙂

  2. Loved your line – the breach of us and them is there. Reminding me of Robert Frost’s poem “The Mending Wall”. Fences divide us. Good capture of that feeling.

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
