The Uncrossable Bridge

I had years of uncrossable bridge dreams., where the bridge just ended, but I haven't had any for a while. At least not that I remember. (This picture was taken at the Dodge Poetry Festival. Click the image to view it larger.)

Bridges often relate to decisions which are emotionally difficult to make. The bridge may symbolizes the finality of this decision. An interrupted or broken bridge may mean that the dreamer, in this case, me, is having difficulty moving forward with a difficult decision, or moving on with life.

When I was trying to move to Detroit, bridges at both ends were under construction. When bridges at both ends were finished, I decided it was time to complete the move, and did.
