Carpe Diem #1678 Troiku Month (7) Unlocked Fence

Dear Haijin, visitors and travekers,

Years ago I particiated in a haiku challenge that run for a month. Every day there was a new theme and one of those days the source for inspiration was a photo by Siva's Artwork. I will give you that photo later on but first I will give you the haiku to work with.

The haiku to share was part of a haiku suite of three haiku inspired on the above mentioned photo. The first haiku of that haiku suite I will give you to work with. The other two I will give you also, but the following haiku is the haiku to use:

unlocked fence
walking towards the countryside
finally free

Here is the above mentioned photo:

Unlocked Fence

Before I give you the other two haiku which are part of the above mentioned haiku suite, I love to share my thoughts that brought me to that haiku suite.

[...] "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." [...]

And as promised, here are the other two haiku of the haiku suite:

brown leaves
rustle through the corridor
David's Star rises

closing the garden
no one to disturb my thoughts -

  1. This was a fascinating one - although rather difficult. I liked your Haiku suite very much Chèvrefeuille, and used it to create not only the troiku - but a "troiku suite" to tell an extended story. This one, this prompt, is going to sit with me for awhile. That image of the fence-gate is very interesting.
