From This Bridge - Poem by michael oliver

Play Poem Video

From this bridge of time's shadow
The white blosssom suspends the machinery
Its impermanence witheld spring bright sharp

The stream flows an uneven script
A revel of light rolling soliloquy

As after the wilting and dropping
Petal white absolves with inert narrative

Upon reflection what is the change?
The ever quality the water word
Has a permanence bright spring clear


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is the final version of 'From the Bridge' this one gets closer to what i am after.
