across a rose fence--
a cat lover
a cat hater
How far can we see across the rose-hedge fence, beyond our own personal likes and dislikes, feelings for or against? Can we be more like the rose hedge: neutral as nature, open to views from both sides of the fence and beyond? This microcosmic haiku exposes the truth of the world situation and yet it somehow nudges us to imagine, as in the classic John Lennon song, "Imagine"...and go beyond it. ~commentary adapted from haiku mind by Patricia Donegan
The pink flowery hedge was found in Chicopee, Massachusetts in July.
