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
    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..
    per words
    of John 14:12..
    or maybe i was/am
    naive as almost every
    Christian i meet scoffs at that
    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
    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”
