Border Crossing



Overarching support
links communities
by ideology

Miz Quickly asks us to write a poem of between 15 syllables and eight lines, and tells us to be concrete.  I have a literal kind of mind.

  1. And my rather long comment disappeared into the ethers so I shall simply say how evocative of so much.

    Cleverly done Viv! Yes, a support that links, sorely given a miss by the strong over the weak!

    I grew up in an area that had many bridges connecting communities.
    And now I live in an area where they are trying to salvage the older covered bridges.
    The Landis Covered Bridge isn’t all that far from me. 14th bridge from the top.


  5. I loved how this could be three or four poems in one depending on how you read it. Borders have always been something puzzling to me. Who decides where to put a border and why?

    Ah, well, if it’s a border to Romania, I’m OK with that….;-)
    I do hope the ideals and concepts of the EU can survive all that is currently happening. I don’t want to go back to a place of borders and walls and barking officials…

  14. Perfect for a short poem — many stories in very few words.
