One Deep Breath - Bridges

I noticed the theme for this week's haiku and I was compelled to drop in for a brief visit and post this. It fits with my reflections this week.

BRIDGES














Looking across space
Hands span across history
Bridge across, fractures

AnnieElf said...

Deeply introspective right now Vicci. But thank you. Friends are a great fix.

Extending a hand to cross those bridges together. Don't forget we're here...

wonderful photos and wise words.

Sandy said...

Annie,
We need a bridge across a fracture about now.
Lovely photos!

Ally Bean said...

The photos are a lovely. I like the idea of bridges across fractures. One of my favorite sayings is: build a bridge, get over it! So naturally, I think this haiku is inspired.

I nearly got lost in the bridges, because they look like they can go where ever I wanted them to go. I think it is an introspective time of the year. We are still sleepy from winter, but have the urge to stretch and grow, just like the plants. I know I'm doing a lot of soul searching right now. Not sad, not unhappy, just searching and perhaps mapping out the next few months!

Hmmm the idea of bridge over fractures, I like it. Many ways to look at that. Thank you for such rich thinking food.

Marcia said...

The comma in the last line is so telling and the two bridges, although contrasts, are both fractured. Your words carry a lot of weight.

Bridges are a very powerful metaphor for so many things - beautiful photos. :)

Very fine visuals and I think I know that bridge from my youth. Let me know where it is back stage. THanks. I hope your spirit lifts you back up and out, but introspective moments are when we grow the most.
