Figurehead

The ropes of this bridge across nothing

one by one are snapping

and here at the center, halfway to nowhere

all I can do is wait for the fall to come

Looking around, I see I am one among many

row upon row of fraying bridges

all facing a figurehead on firm ground

who looks just about ready to save us from the chasm

any day now

  1. “Just about ready” … yes, and getting more ready by the minute. I can feel the excitement building and I pray for a peaceful walk across that fraying bridge… and a safe arrival onto that “firm ground.” Thanks for your poetry. Inspiring!
