so much depends
a red wheel barrow
glazed with rain water
beside the white chickens
Sets the tone for poem. Shows the importance of the wheelbarrow.
The pause between wheel and barrow is to break the images to its most basic parts in order to view the object as closely as possible.
The word glazed gives the reader a closer look on the wheelbarrow. Rain also gives it a new or fresh perspective.
Another color, "white" is used to contrast the earlier red in the second stanza.
Anybody have other ideas on what the poem means?
It’s cool take your time.
