Phew. That photo is full of, well, contrasts. I immediately thought "The Tin Man" of Oz...how sad. Then, children playing under power lines? But, they're not real...but children do play beneath them... this haiga really set me to thinking! Well written oneliner, too.

Wonderful and filled with energy, light and movement! And I saw the Tin Man too, just like Roswila wrote.

Love the depth of the photo and how suitable the haiku.
