The Bridge

The sun upon it like a crown.

Reflection making it look the same up, as it does down.

The ripples in the water are the ripples of my life.

A skimming stone cuts through the water cutting my heart as if a knife.

Reflections  are reflections of my thoughts and dreams

They look so real yet all is not as simple as it seams.

    Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but words are everlasting
    Reflections are nice but they do not reveal all

      Thank you so much it did become much more profound than I expected! To be honest our youngest son visited us last Saturday as his wife was out shopping with her Mum and sister. I was feeling unwell and wanting to write a poem I asked for a title and he said “The Bridge” then the memories grew! XX
