The Wiggly Bridge
Melanie Kyer

The bridge is closed.
I didn’t want to cross it until it closed.
And now I see it taunt me from afar.

The bridge is closed.
It was a wiggly bridge anyway–
The other side a dark forest of unknowns.

 The bridge is closed.
The path to get there shifting sand and rock,
Requiring a thoughtful, measured step.

 The bridge is closed.
But I have faith I’ll walk that path someday,
To tread the shaking trestle, step by step.

 I will see the other side.
