Bridging

Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge in Austin, Texas
Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge in Austin, Texas

Something to cherish

passing to the other side

over a strong bridge

The connector

Woman from the neighbourhood
some kids in a school up north
employees visiting from nearby
and travellers just passing by
a retiree who was bored at home
conscious youth wanting a jog
owners leashing their animals
and dogs walking their humans
connecting a scattered world
cold, steel, and hard on the outside
bridging the lives of the unknown
a testament to society, stands a bridge 

Airport thoughts

As fades in slow motion
light of the evening sky
darkness falls in earnest
shrouding peering relations
those waving from the outside
while bright lights come on inside
turned on to illuminate the chaos
that’s reigning within these chambers
echoing voices of the eager travellers
electronically tones magnified ring
urging all to avoid the rush hour
guiding the misguided first timers
and wailing all along, for attention
of the juniors in high-energy mode
rising just as the world falls asleep
is an airport in a scattered time zone

Fate of the unprepared

The worst in many years
it’s biting and it’s chilling
heartless coldness unfearing
creeping through the darkness
peeping in half-open wardrobes
combing a way through, unabashed
thrusting itself upon the air
and pricking at my wiggly toes
cutting through cotton clothes
and laughing at the unprepared
comes winter in autumn’s wake
