National Poetry Month: fence haiku

fence rail

twist ties
topping the garden fence;
catching raindrops
...-Andromeda Jazmon

This fence that wraps around my backyard has seen some struggles & survived some pounding. As the boys arelearning to ride bikes, scooters and skates they continually crash into it. It's bent out of shape and has to be closed with a piece of rope. I have tried to get it repaired but so far have not found the right handyman to do the job. Still, it works well as a raindrop catcher.
