The Fence

Posted on

White pickets pose

Tapered in alternate angles

Once stately, now weathered

Rain soaked

Naturally white washed

Time and sun chip away

Leaving peelable flakes

For someone’s obsession

Or therapy


A precarious division

Unstable, still standing

Warped, still grounded

Surrounded by the green

Of unruly blades, wind-bent

Identical meadow grasses

On either side

Today at dVerse Poets Pub, Victoria has asked us to write a poem using imagism. This highly descriptive style originated in the early 1900’s and focuses intensely on a single image. Metaphors are usually not included although an underlying meaning may be interpreted.
