Fay Slimm.





And when two minds strive

for need of forced win

love's hourglass tilts timing

for storm to begin.


Ahead lies crevasses where

hope falls, fades and dies

as only ghosts survive air

around two hot fires.


We once built trust on meant

rise by proceeding.

Let sense climb those bridges

and find it again.

        • Marie

          Building bridges is not easy but is so worth the effort provided both people are willing to build the bridge together, to lay old ghosts to rest and to rebuild trust broken and you have captured that very eloquently in this lovely poem, dear Fay! A lovely, meaningful message within your words. Thank you for sharing, Fay...

          • Fay Slimm.

            My pleasure as always to offer some suggestions of building love's bridges dear Marie. So grateful for your encouragement too.

            • Marie

              Quite amazing how rifts can be bridged by the love on either side of a deep sorrow. Two again become one, healing as a wound closes over and no scar remains.

              • Fay Slimm.

                Yes I agree Dusk - bridges can only be built if there is love on both sides. thanks a lot for your wise reflections on the subject my friend.

              • Jerry Reynolds

                Good write, Fay.
                Forgiveness solid foundation for bridges.

                • Fay Slimm.

                  I truly agree Jerry that forgiveness is so often needed to help keep relationships om firm ground.

                • Neil Higgins

                  • Doggerel Dave

                    My pedestrian political mind sees it as a motion to be presented at the United Nations....
                    Beautiful frameable piece, Fay.

                  • Accidental Poet

                    Very inspiring write Fay. Reminds me of a song by a mother/daughter singing duo "The Judds". The song of "Love Can Build a Bridge".

                  • Goldfinch60

                    So very true, those bridges in life MUST BE built together Fay.
