barbed-wire kisses

Somewhere between the late 1990’s and the early 2000’s, I was taking a creative writing class at a local community college.  One of the assignments was to write poetry…and I put together something about two lovers who could only meet at the fence of the jail yard where one of them was incarcerated.  All told, it was rather lame; kissing through the fence, etc., right, whatever; but the title remains in my memory.  It is refreshed, somehow, when I encounter the stuff again, the barbed-wire; it just pops to mind.

Anyway…sunrise along a high-desert highway in Arizona, 7/21/2019…there it is all over again…barbed-wire kisses….

  1. That would hurt . . . especially if electrified.

  2. I can see how that title came back to you – it’s a wonderful title for this image, which is mesmerizing. Barbed wire in the landscape is often really interesting but you’ve shown a surprising view here. Somehow, the barbed wire is transformed from a threat to a blessing. I hope all’s well with you, Scott!

    • Interesting perspective/observation, Lynn…from a threat to a blessing. What a notion. How many other things in our lives can be transformed in such a manner….

      And all is well enough here, Lynn. Wishing you well, also, thank you. 🙂

      • Trust Scott to turn philosophical and raise an intriguing question. 😉
