White on Blue

Written for:  Poets United – Poetry Pantry #382 (posted by Mary)


Vaalannkurkku Railway Bridge – Finland

White on blue,
trees freeze
in place,
limbs list
in weighted snow.
Fog enshrouds
bridge and sky,
creating bridge
to appear
as a ghostly floating
oasis able to disappear
in mid-air.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. I love seeing a bridge rise up out of the fog…happens often, on the coast.
