Bridges

There are bridges made of living roots of rubber trees

Spanning rivers in India organically

And their strength increases over time

Unlike those made of cement and iron

So engineers and construction firms

Please take note and maybe learn

To co-opt the landscape on either side

Of whatever chasm we can’t abide

Instead of using steel girders

Just use the trees and please the birders

Bridge

Bridge

Crossing over

Rusted beams

Holding fast to falling dreams

Walking together

In stride

From here to there

This to that

If it rains

Carry an umbrella

And carry on
