Very strong metaphor in your haiku, which is open to interpretation and has a bit of mistery to it. To me, the nails on the old fence could signify perhaps pain from the past, which has been healed by spiritual enlightenment. Lovely. Thanks for sharing. :)

I'm not sure if I have a different view of the nails because I am older but to me the nails go with the old saying that something is "As tough as nails." meaning that one never gives up or that something cannot be destroyed. So for me the nails represent that they are still there each day holding that fence in the same place upon which it was built and they will be there with each new day to give their support. Also for me the nails could represent one's parents who will be there for their children to love and support them each day of their life.

Hi, nails paving way for new light, end marking beginning, lovely!

Hi Jaideep. I like the layer you could see in this poem. As a christian believer, nails remind me of our Lords sufferings on the cross in order to pave the way of salvation for us. HIS nails are eternal,left there for ever. The fence separates the world of believers from non-believers. I am glad that you raised this point even though you discussed it in general.

  6. Hi Rita,

    Welcome to Theme Thursday! Glad to have you join us and I hope you have lots of fun playing each week.

    I'm not sure if I have a different view of the nails because I am older but to me the nails go with the old saying that something is "As tough as nails." meaning that one never gives up or that something cannot be destroyed. So for me the nails represent that they are still there each day holding that fence in the same place upon which it was built and they will be there with each new day to give their support. Also for me the nails could represent one's parents who will be there for their children to love and support them each day of their life.

    Thank you for playing in this weeks Theme Thursday and I hope you are inspired by each weeks new theme.

    God bless.

  7. Hi Mrsupole.
    I enjoyed reading your analysis of this poem. I am glad that you have a different perspective. I have once read that a good poem has different layers and each one can see another layer.
    Moreover, the prompts at your blog reflect your creative soul. I am honored to know you and join the challenges.
