Day 28

Today's Prompt from NaPoWriMo.net

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about bridges. A bridge is a powerful metaphor, and when you start looking for bridges in poems, you find them everywhere. Your poem could be about a real bridge or an imaginary or ideal bridge. It could be one you cross every day, or one that simply seems to stand for something larger – for the idea of connection or distance, for the idea of movement and travel and new horizons.


of a nose
or in the mouth
a circuit board
the cue rest at Saturday's pool night
the card game - Clubs Trump
the musical passage
the rail gantry.

We yearn to build
hope to not burn
cross when we must grow
and toss pebbles as wishes into the water below.
