The Haiku Challenge day 27



Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 27 – February 27th – Theme: Paint the Image
Photo Clicked by Siva of: Siva's Art Work



What does this Image tell me? What do I see? I see a fence, it's open. Is it a fence that closed a concentration camp or ... something else. Could this open fence stand for freedom of thought, freedom to live your own life. It looks like an opening to reach out to freedom. On the fence I see a Star of David, the Jewish symbol. In the distance I see a farm ... it looks like this was a concentration camp, the most of them were situated on the countryside. Further I see fallen leaves, brown colored so the season must be Autumn or early Winter. The sky is grey, it's a sad mood this image brings up to me, but also a happy mood, because the fence is open and freedom beckons.
This will be a tough challenge I think, but ... I have said that so many times during this Challenge and I always succeeded. So this time ... well we shall see.

See you tomorrow.

Your second Haiku, where you mention David's Star rising was my favorite. However, I think you did an excellent job with this prompt.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind comment. I like your blog so I'm going to "follow" along. Hope you don't mind, and hope you'll "follow" me too. :)

There is an invitation to freedom in the open gate! Love how you introduced your haiku with an overview of what you see in the image before delving in with a poetic answer!

Awesome! You all make me blush ... these are all such wonderful comments. Comments that are an inspiration for me to go on writing haiku. It makes me happy that so many visitors love reading my verses.

The Haiku Challenge comes almost to an end. I am happy, but also a little bit sad, because it will end.
Thank you Someone is Special for the opportunity to be part of the Challenge.
