Maple Canyon Bridge


Building Bridges                                                       IMG_0002

Words are a bridge

between you and me,

my age, like strong posts reaching down

deep into the canyon,

anchored  strong,

Your youth is the span,

risking a reach across

the chasm of time,

going to a time I will not follow.

Our words are a bridge

Reaching from my heart

to yours, your dreams  to mine,

your hopes, young loves,

Despair, the bridge

like a jumping off point to end sadness.

For me, in the middle of the long span

of life, I see your future,

limitless, paths tracing

the ground up and down,

around curves we cannot see beyond,

always aiming toward beauty,

your young lives a wonder,

Our words, a bridge.
