The Bridge


Price: $5.00

The bridge, a glimpse, I needed to cross.
My connection to freedom.
I looked eagerly, hesitantly to the other side.
Even though I knew other choices, paths.

The smiling wood, so mellow to touch.
So glossy and warm in the sun's bright rays.
Despite the winter of my life come to call,
I was enticed to cross, and as i did,
I sat upon it's loving frame.

The bridge invted me to stay, to sing, to dance.
I basked in it's realness, depth.
Sharing, laughing, knowing it's pain ,tending each other
As the mountain stream carressed the rocks below.

Carvings to teach me on thr refuge I found
Of life crossed before.
As my heart resistef the foreign knowledge,
I integrated the message, and in time
Relinquished my body to my soul.

I do not wish to possess, nor do I want control.
Born of expectation is bondage.
I believe in my self-worth enough to give,
And when no return occurs, the gift remains true.

Upon the bridge,an enhancement,
I carved my spirit's call.
That it's oak laden frame be supported by kindness,
Not anger.

It's hemp twined rope be tight with tension
To allow continuity,
But loose with compassion
To give with the weight of other's needs.

It's width be measured by it's openess,
Not it's denial.
It's strength be tested by it's will to love,
Not it's need to stand alone.

For in it's purpose of offering a crossing,
The bridge attaches to both sides.
