A bridge going nowhere
People passing by,
Not one acknowledging anotherís greeting
Nor a friendly stare.
Just the sun rising
On a bridge going nowhere.
All those people passing, looking,
On a bridge going nowhere
No one ever knowing
Love could be out there
On a bridge going nowhere.

Reminds me of the Chesapeak Bay Bridge, my first time over was an awsome experience...

Incredible picture, and bittersweet write.  

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks LeeJ, Auckland Harbour bridge New Zealand. Taken at sunrise a week ago. It was an incredible morning. The words just popped out tonight. Thanks for the read. Apart from the somewhat dubious poetry, photography is a hobby I indulge in.

I guess you're right, time prophet, love is on a bridge going nowhere.  Strange, or perhaps not so strange, that a bridge can inspire from different ends and not meet up at the middle.

time prophet,
  I enjoyed the photo and the thoughts it brought...
           miscellanea

   a bridge with lengthy cables
  and inner knotted thoughts
   houses umpteen travelers
  from the clouds, only dots...

happened upon this and thought I'd save it;
Enjoyed reading it once again;
