“Sometimes you have to, as I say, build bridges where you can – but draw lines where you must.” Fred Thompson

Photo Challenge: More LINES - BROOKLYN BRIDGE AT DUSK

Photo Challenge: More LINES – BROOKLYN BRIDGE AT DUSK and More

For this week’s challenge on LINES, I’m sharing some construction shots including the ever popular Brooklyn Bridge at dusk. I’ve been thinking about the theme for this week and trying to find a philosophical arc I can hold unto to help me interpret the assignment. There are lines everywhere we look. From nature to man made structures, there are lines small and large … Lifeline comes to mind. The poem below fits the bill and I’ve tried to include photos that hold special memories for me. Let’s think about this one.

Dancing on the Lifeline by Cecil Miller
Dancing on the lifeline,
Flying through the dirt,
Mixing into puddles,
Resembling the sky…

Everything is nothing.
Nothing is everything.
The truth is but a lie
Not looked in the eye.
The spoiled goods we buy!

Dancing on the lifeline,
Spinning dervish, spin.
Aquire all the knowledge you seek,
Find it is within. More below

The Brooklyn Bridge is beautiful to see during the day but, the night is magnificent. Lights glow and the bridge beckons, trying to get us to understand that it loves visitors crossing the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Come back for the rest of the items shown in the collage.

Contd from above.
Poets are the prophets
To the souls of those that read.
The magick that is in the verses
Always plants a seed
To enlightenment, the need.

We are all
Dancing on the lineline,
Connected by the threads,
That comprise the ribbons
Of the thoughts within our heads.

Everything for which we thirst
Is already in our chalice.
We only need to drink of it,
But need to keep the balance…
Beware the one called valiant.

Never fear that victor,
Who has never seen a challenge,
Who has been given everything
On a silver platter.

Listen to the hope inside.
Follow it, as you lead.
As you cast your spells
And spin your webs, take heed.

Dancing on your lifeline,
Holding onto what is true.
Only when you care for others,
Will you know they care for you.
 

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post:  – LINES –  This week, share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature or as part of a cityscape. We look forward to seeing your interpretations!
