Bridge Keeper

after the collapse

I picked up one stone at a time

some cut my hands

others smooth and fine

rebuilding the bridge in winter's growl

reassembling the rubble I created

that now lay at my feet

so I just... began

One rock at a time

now I await the ivy

to wind around the structure

giving it age and beauty

the flowers to bloom around the stone ends

waiting for the fragrance of fortuity

spring will birth

I am

The bridge keeper
