Thanks to Paul Hankins at These Four Corners for hosting Poetry Friday this week!
For a long while, the news has not been good from numerous places in the world. Here in the US, the conflicts continue, the sadness of loss remains. Each week I am wondering why those in conflict cannot work harder to come together in compromise instead of working harder to win a battle? I wrote a poem in the past year to a picture prompt from Laura Purdie Salas, where she posts a different picture each Thursday. I found a photo that is similar to Laura's, as well as I can remember. Here is the picture and here is the poem, a constant wish, put into a poem, thanks to Laura.
Wishing bridge building
could be as beautiful
as capturing a chasm
