The Scent of Pine

fallen fence post
counting out pills

  1. It seems to be a fact of life any more for so many of us... counting out the pills....

  2. I'm afraid so. Saved my life though!

  3. It's so nice to have the opportunity to see things through your eyes, Kirsten. Of course I had been visualizing my own fence! Seeing these photos with your haiku really makes them come alive for me. :)

  4. Ah, cool! Thanks, Cara :)
    This fence along our property is shared with a cow paddock and the posts are pushed and moved aside as the cows put their heads through to reach the grass on our side.
    I took this photo a few months ago now and really liked it, and was glad when I found that it fit with my ku (the butterfly adds the colours of the pills).
