Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~The Wall (posted by Sumana)
How do you react when you encounter a wall? Are you happy or do you feel left out? Does it look like an obstacle, a barrier or is it more like a symbol of safety and strength?
The wall has been a part of human civilization, either to keep things within or to wall out unwanted elements.
You are to write about The Wall; visible, invisible; real or imaginary; and even historic walls like the Great Wall of China or the Berlin Wall will do.
It might also be about your garden fence if you have one.
“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”— Isaac Newton
In restaurants I sit against a wall.
I need something solid behind me.
Cannot free float, center of room,
chair not sufficient support.
I need to note where
exit and bathroom
I could not
Marvel at steel
design and structure.
Bridges are works of art,
pleasurable to look at,
while a wall is thick and obscure.
A bridge and a wall seem opposite.
Each has a purpose in my life of needs.
