your efforts to keep me out
simply draw me in

your stalwart purpose
is softened by the
intricacies of your detail
and the patina
of your worn veneer

your presence
hints at mysteries
and secrets
that my soul
desires to uncover

your beauty can be
a prelude to a
visual symphony
or the
main attraction

i seek you out
in forgotten
back streets 
and on rambling
country lanes

i gasp with delight
when i first
behold your beauty

i sigh with contentment
when you reveal
your hidden wonders

you are my muse
spurring my creativity
to take wing
and fly

I love taking pictures of fences and what's beyond them. Nice poem!

beautiful words... and SO TRUE! I never thought of fences in quite the same way, but I will forever look at them in a new light!
