The gap between the life I’d envisioned
and this current reality is widening…
I need a bridge – not a short, low one,
but a large, expansive bridge to carry
all my wishes, to facilitate movement
of passing ideals, allow for traffic flow.
Or a bridge to slow me down, dialled in
to the sun’s rays, directing me toward
a new reality that encompasses change.
