83/366 - Bridge To Nowhere (on earth)

2012.03.23

Remnants of an old steel mill - now but a bridge to nowhere.

Note: Thanks for visiting my blog. The lesson learned is below, after my little to for a friend.

Goodbye 3/22/12

Her - No real purpose -

By worldly standards

A bridge to nowhere

(on earth)

A money pit

Of care costs – of worry costs

Of broken heart costs

Most at "them" at the time were –

“put away” - separated

(For everyone’s good)

Out of sight – and mind…

And hair. – but not her (thankfully)

She left this world - quickly

Fifty years - in the mainstream

Of life – calm waters

But floods and rapids too.

Today – in the church –

Her life – that bridge to nowhere…completed

Carried people of every kind - today...

To see her sweet face

Between vases of flowers.

Touched by her insignificance –

Her simple, moment to moment existence

To say good bye – and I am sure

To secretly wish that they –

Might be so loved and missed

When their bridge – to

Nowhere – is completed.

Lesson Learned: We can learn more about how to live life by watching and loving those in our lives who have the least control over their own lives.

EvaLizette "We're on a road to nowhere
come on inside.
Takin' that ride to nowhere
we'll take that ride.
I'm feelin' okay this mornin'
and you know.
We're on the road to paradise
here we go
here we go."
Talking Heads "I`m on the road to nowhere"

Wonderful touching post Dan

Eiram What a coinsidence -yesterday I saw a movie at the movie festival Febiofest: Her name is Sabine. It is a French movie, the director has an autistic sister and the movie is about her - very strong, very touching. If you have a chance check it out.

girafferacing Great architectural image. I thought for a moment it was part of a transporter bridge.

Ryana In a certain way this is a creepy image ... at least it gives me that feeling.

Strong post Dan.
