Bridging – a poem

Unfocused far bank,
Over mist laden water
Connected by shadow bridge.
Blurred lights reflected,
Its sweeping arch
Mingled in the waters
Forming a dark circle.

Two lonely people,
Faces mist bathed,
Eyes feasting on atmosphere.
Their warmth radiating,
Bridging an untouched gap.
Momentarily two are linked
In the night air.

Floating over still waters,
The crescent moon peers out
To an impressionist image
Of a bridge circle.
To transitory bonding
Of two wispy forms
Beside the misty waters.
