Poem of the Month - June 2014

The Bridge, by Jackie Biggs

The Bridge
The river is in full spate,
I stand on the bank.
In the shady corner of my mind -
are you there on the sunny side?
I see the living colours of the day from a distance
searing sky, fevered sun.
I feel the coldness of the shaded breeze
chill to my heart.
Not a respite from the midday midsummer,
but static-cold in its own right,
not a contrast, no balancing act;
chilly separate.
I am on the wrong side of the bridge,
but I cannot move.
We are frozen. On opposite sides.
