So many bridges.
Bridges of concrete…
Ancient ones of stone…
Some are famous…
…celebrated in story…
Some draw pilgrims from all over the world.
…yet they serve the same purpose.
To span distance…
…to deliver us from troubled waters.
There’s an old saying…it is better to build bridges than walls.

Lovely post. Always in search of a way across, and we hope there is a bridge.
I like the cyber bridge that has led me to you, Naomi! 🙂
Me too! Me too!
And we are building bridges here. Thank you, Naomi, our precious storyteller.
You are precious to us all. You send encouragement and wisdom and poetry out into the world like fairy dust, and I am so fortunate that some of it has fallen my way!
Thanks so much!
“It is better to build bridges than walls”. I shall mark that as a quote worth quoting. Thanks Naomi, for a lesson in colourful brevity.
Thank you so much!
Wonderful images that bridge words, thought and feeling. Loved it.
