Imperfect Prose - Bridge

A bridge calls out
even in silence
demanding a choice
of options simple
but not easy
or remain still.

Like a fork in the road
without a sign post
you can never
in your own understanding
be sure
which is the better way.

But the One
Who Himself
became the bridge
to reconnect us
to the Father
will speak softly
and surely
"this is the way, walk in it"

And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.

Come join in with Emily of In the Hush of the Moon for Imperfect Prose Thursday

The bridge in this post is so beautiful. The picture even captured the shadow so well. Your verse had good meaning. A bridge offers choice, whether to go ahead or not. If you go ahead, you might attain a different destiny. Nice poetry.

your words bridge the gap in between,
what a cute piece.

I love to dance across that bridge into his arms, this analogy is golden

Many are called but few are chosen, we need to listen with our hearts, lest we forget, and become too much one with this material world.

Thanks for joining my blog and leaving since a kind comment, I am joining you right back.
