A life will be spent
getting from there to here
discerning the ‘now’ from the ‘then’
-testing bridges
that bear the weight of all our mistakes
and flounderings
And yet- as life oscillates
between foolishness and wisdom
from our Springs to our Winters
from birth to the grave

….bridges hold….
moulded by  our experiences
