Spanning Bridges

Written for:  Poetic Asides #440 – Write a generation poem.

I am always awed to see music,
art, and film span bridges
of generations. Concert audiences
are invariably people of different
ages. Young people attend classic
films, and museums are schools
of learning for students yearning
to become that next great artist.

As a child, bridges are vast; as a teen,
short and narrow. Age may erase
bridges for some, or build wider
ones that know no bounds. Remember,
your generation is one of many.


About purplepeninportland

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.
