Beautiful liberty which the birds enjoy!! Perfect !! liberty--to think, feel or do just as one pleases!! Barbed wires bring horrible memories from History!!

Oh, good one! Wings can go where arms and legs cannot! Excellent!

Liberty here and here and here

I had left a comment here but don't see it!!
I like the liberties that birds enjoy but barbed wires and walls are so restricting!! Are they there to keep away straying cattle??

thanks! i think birds have a good deal, they can go where they like. :)
i used an image of barbed wire here because as you said, it is used to keep people in (and also to keep them out).


thank you! glad you like the haiku. :)

Sorry, Nanka, i am a bit slow in showing the comments. I have activated comment moderation, as i had a bad spell of spam in the past.
