I wrote the following poem, “Fences of the Heart,” in response to my friend, Blue Moon Thinker’s, blog post titled The Amazing Appearing Fence. I originally posted it in her comment section. With her permission, I decided to clean it up and share it here. The first line is a direct quote from her post. I have her permission to use it. 🙂
FENCES OF THE HEART
I pulled back the curtains and what did I see?
An amazing white fence peering at me.
It sprang up in hours – faster than a weed,
Or any other living thing growing from a seed.
As I reflect, pondering, on my life;
I wonder about the fences of division and strife.
They can easily be buried deep beneath the ground;
All of my relationships, they quickly can surround.
By the time I realize how they’re hurting me,
Finally decide that I want to be set free;
Their posts are driven deep into the soil of my heart,
And those deceptive fences are hard to tear apart.
