Over the Fence

;

;

;

At midday,

the untamed land

beyond the fence

called for potential adventurers,

needing for it’s dark areas

to be explored.

;

When the sun sets along

the fence line it transformed

the overgrowth to a magical place.

Sunlight dancing among branches

and hidden places laden with

imaginative potential.

;

Darker shadows of night

transformed it into a

sinister realm of unknown,

potential lair for denizens of evil.

A foreboding place to deter

intrepid travelers.

  1. This is delightful. I liked the repeated use of potential in the last two stanzas, like a refrain. Could you find a place for it in the first stanza as well?

    Funny how lighting plays tricks on us.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
