crossing the quadrille

 
a bridge is a bridge is…

an act of faith

an art of engineering

an avenue of commerce

an advance of connection

 
a bridge is a bridge is…

an achievement of minds

an arch of triumphs

an arm of invasion

an altar of fire

 


Tuesday’s theme at dVerse Poetics is “bridge”…let’s play!

    I kNow you
    don’t mean to..
    in a-causal connecting principle
    oF synchronicity.. and i’M not
    sure iF iT was last time
    when i dropped by..
    per noting more then..
    when i got enough
    break to visit
    dVerse
    aGAin
    and saw
    you toward the
    end again Lynn..
    but with an act of
    unwavering faith i am
    in the process of finishing
    the end of another Bible now..
    66 Macro-Verses at 990K words long..
    hehe.. that’s a mighty long bridge oF Faith
    finished in around 7 and a half months now..
    my Friend..
    Jesus
    wasn’t
    kidding
    per words
    of John 14:12..
    or maybe i was/am
    naive as almost every
    Christian i meet scoffs at that
    reaLiTy
    noW..
    except for
    a rap singer
    or two i met on
    the road when i finished
    6666 miles of public praise
    dance in precisely 40 months.. too..
    not many folks are interested in that
    these days.. my friend.. not realizing
    that
    those
    days
    are these noW..:)

    The juxtaposition between the bridge and its metaphor… perfect

    Love this quadrille…..and the repetition of the first line in both stanzas. Especially like “an act of faith”
