Crossing the Bridge

I’m a bit late, but I’m joining d’Verse Poets with the challenge to write a poem about a bridge.  I’m also sharing with Real Toads for the Tuesday Platform.

A path through the garden,
winding and twisting,
leads to secret places.
Discovering along the way
truths timidly revealed.
Approaching with caution
a  simple foot bridge–
the path to a new start–
leaving all behind.
You can’t untravel
a garden’s path.

  1. Nice, I like the word choice “timidly” as compared with, for example, reluctantly. Suggests the secrets never wanted to be secrets but were waiting for the right moment to be revealed.

  3. …you can’t untravel a garden path….Oh I lOVE this idea….and the idea that truths are “timidly revealed” as we travel over the bridges of our life…such a detailed word to use “timidly” and it really adds to the poem. So glad you posted! 🙂
