Because love suffocates
behind closed walls, it dares
bare its very soul and
brave heartaches so love can
bridge the barriers fear
built among hearts and
bring healing Grace to all.


The poem is a pleiades, essentially a poem with seven lines that begins with the same letter and  with six syllables each.




  1. There’s something about small wooden bridges that just relax the mind, Maybe the stream or the feel of it when you lean over to take it all in 🙂

    1. Hi, Tina. Thanks.

      If you happen by the Bangor area, there is this Mt. Hope Cemetery, then there is also the Bangor City Forest and the Bog Board Walk. I learned about those places on my last visit. We are regulars in ME because my in-laws live there.

    1. Nice to hear that, Luanne. I got it from one of DVerse’s prompts. These forms are handy when words are lacking (at least for me). 🙂

  2. The bridge and surroundings feel peaceful and inviting. A place to sit and contemplate, let the afternoon slip by on a hot summer day. I like the rhythm and musicality of the poem, the way the lines move into each other.
