TJ’s Weekly Household Weekly Challenge – Wood

This week we have ‘wood’ to work with for TJ’s challenge. Now, I could have chosen any number of things, chairs, tables, etc. but I thought I would write about our poor old garden fence instead.

Broken fence

Battered and broken,

propped up, drunkenly swaying

Its days are numbered!

  1. Nice Haiku, Judy. “drunkenly swaying” so visual, love it. Interesting timing, as yesterday I struggled with our backyard gate. It had fallen a while ago, lying in the snow, “broken and battered”. I heaved it up and leaned it against the fence hoping to keep my daughter’s dog from escaping onto the street and ending up splattered. Mind you, a half decent wind could knock it down again but that’s as handy as we get around our place πŸ™‚

    1. I am not into DIY either, but my husband put the fence up in the first place a few years ago. He fusses every time we have a windy day, and it managed to survive! This year, however ,it has succumbed! 😦

      1. Yes, it was tragic. As he has been gone 50 years, I would imagine he has had plenty of time to reflect and “mend some fences” πŸ˜‰
