Wishes from a Bridge


I wish that you had been here with me

upon my wooden slats

to smell the remnants of summer air

before the temperature crashed

of the dried leaves upon my boards

to see them scatter just a bit

in unspoken, leafy words

I wish you had heard the sounds

of geese flying overhead

their honks of joy going south

to make their winter’s bed

I wish that you had walked my path

the same as Mary J

to see the blue sky, white clouds,

and bright yellow-oranges of the day


I wish that you had breathed in

and noticed the whiff of gray plank

It’s what I have to offer humans

In appreciation and thanks

I wish you could experience joy

as much as I do here

when birds sing, branches wave

and nature is forever near

      There are trees and water and wetland underneath. I love that they preserved the land and built a bridge that doesn’t detract.

        Thanks! I am better, but not BETTER. I can’t smell anything right now, but tomorrow’s another day 🙂
