On Passing A Hanging Bridge

a poem by RIC S. BASTASA

on passing a hanging bridge
the sway can be felt

you will be there alone
not in two's
not even to be with the person
you love or your trusted friend

not that there is no valid reason for that
the hanging bridge may feel your weight

and give in and you may fall with it
and die in an instant

there are rules to be borne in mind
you are not suppose to look on either side, left or right
or look downward otherwise you will feel
being sucked by the raging river below you
and then you become nauseous
and then eventually you fall
and then die crashing
on the rocks

i have reflected on it that day after i passed the hanging bridge.
it is like life itself. I must pass alone. I must always look forward.

The bridge photo arrested me! Sort of an anxious-creating spot in your journey (for me! haha..) but the photos are well worth it. ...and I'm glad you didn't die crashing on the rocks. How else would we get to see these magnificent shots?! weary wink
