The Bridge On The River Aire

Spine
spinal,
vertebrae
marks to be read
lines in a story
in tongues
we once knew;
thread
and threads
threadbare
woven
in movement
thro’ stilness,
alive in the noise
of silence,
flow flowing
ebb ebbing,
a corpus of whom,
of when ,of how,
of where we are,
were,will be,
remaining remembered
renewed thro’ riving
purposed writhing,
reaching a not
purposed slipping
into camouflage
in its own setting;
of a particular
space and time,
now caught,
now released,
animate intense
passively resisting
our questions,
wonder,
hope.

    Congratulations Louis. The poem flows smoothly and beautifully in keeping with its theme…like the river and its silent flowing. Thanks for sharing the poem and the video.

    A pictorial writing paying equal attention to content as well as style, evoking disparate emotions. It impresses.

    The playful sounds of the words resonates with the river. The ebb and flow of words creates the river in the mind. Loved it.
