Bridges - Poem by Richard Kigel

Words are wonders,
Building bridges, crossing canyons,
Meeting minds.

Words unite us,
Tie together threads of thinking,
Merging lines.

Words make meaning,
Understanding,
True connection soul to soul.

Words are bridges
Over oceans.
Isolation takes its toll.

Linked by language,
Reached by words,
We read, we write, we play the part.

We're not alone!
We cross that bridge
To find a friend in every heart.
