Feelings well, and who can tell
if they will stay, or leave us
impetuous, we try our best
to bridge the space between us
~ Hacemos un puente pues ~
Emotions flow, and who can know
if ever they will return
to what they were, or if they are
a bridge forever burnt.

Merril is hosting Poetics, and wants us to write either a poem about bridges, or a poem in the puente form. I hope I have followed the form correctly. My ‘bridge’ sentence is Spanish for ‘let’s make a bridge then.’ I wanted to write the second half in Spanish, but, not being a native speaker, I couldn’t get it to sound right. So I tried to look at aspects of a relationship viewed from two different sides of a bridge instead. If this is not a true puente then at least I have answered the prompt by writing about bridges!
