There is a bridge, it crosses over deserts It cements oceans, binds the icy seas Flies over fiery vulcans, sings melodious Breathes over you a cooling welcome song A bridge that binds where first was separation Oblivious to race, beliefs, or sex. Does not care for timidity, bravado And all it sees is sheer humanity This bridge is art, its splendor shines in silence Its poetry is love, its words seduce This bridges arms wrap tightly 'round who needs it And on this bridge we feast in harmony Let's fill a glass, cheers to fraternization To poetry as art that builds this bridge 'Tween worlds and people, far away and near To friendship, love, and friends so very dear. *** Blank Verse Iambic Pentameter 8th place in contest: Blank Verse Poetry Contest Sponsor: Janice Canerdi

A dream/an ideal/an utopian wish,though not practicable ,still indicates some lively hankering present in the subconscious.A beautiful poem,laudable for it's content,concept and context.

Art in all its forms speaks to the human experience, but poetry so often speaks most deeply. Loved this piece.
