Beauty Day 96

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.


Beauty Day 96 A Wooden Fence


there’s something about

a wooden fence

that gets me every time

I’m talking about the see-through kind

not those brick wall jobbies

that are meant to separate

so that not even viewing is allowed

a wooden fence with wooden bars

like a ladder, easy to climb over

such a style boasts the grain of wood

and permits a person to compare

which side really looks the greenest

this side or that

though winter wet deciduous leaves

aren’t green at all

mainly I like a fence

because it’s like a young child dancing

in wild and crazy polka dots

expressing vibrancy

that costs nothing

and leads to nowhere

that’s why I love to look at wooden fences

I think the adult word is

aesthetics–kind of dead sounding–

yet fences are alive
