The Red Wheelbarrow


so much depends
upon
a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

To me (depending on the day) the wheelbarrow sitting in the rain can be anything from simply sanctified to anchoring the entire universe. I guess that is the beauty of art. One sees one thing, another something else, another nothing at all. Thanks for reading it and sharing your reaction.

I have always loved this one.
