Bamboo bridge

a bridge stretched and where to end

i know not where the point to bend

ignored the weights the hold to carry

enough heavy loads to be called a mighty


an ace done in sturdy bamboo finished

art form though rough spots were not wished

life guaranteed and survived to last

the anger of the sun, rain and dust


suffered the injury the hurt it endured

being stepped upon the safety was ensured

more ways than one the manner you’ve crossed

created a shake boldness in you withdrawn


unmindful as you walked when you saw the bend

sad turn of events at times had to end

lives were down bitter times should not extend

like a bamboo bridge strong to be a friend

  1. Bridges are not just structures, they are examples of how two things or places can be connected. Hypothetically they are a representation of bonds that can be erected to an eternal peace.
    Used to be my favourite subject for making pencil sketches.

    1. Yes, even if it is just made of bamboo, it serve its purpose. So, you make sketches before ? Why don’y you show it here ? Try posting some of them ! thank you. Be safe.


  2. Reblogged this on Triangle Writes… and commented:

    As I scrolled down my works for a visit, I passed this poem of mine that I wrote two years ago and read it over.

    I came to realize that although the bridge was built with bamboo materials it has served its purpose appropriately well.

    I was certain that bridges are of help to people to move around and it couldn’t be denied that it has served the community in many ways. Credit goes to the BAMBOO and its builders.

    Here’s the poem.


  3. That’s true ! Bamboos are traditional construction materials in our place that have greater compressive strength and lightweight. They are widely used to build houses and bridges. Yes, bamboo shoots can be eaten as pickles or mixed with other vegies plus coco milk ! Thank you so much for the comment and the visit, Cheryl !!
