Flashing bridges

smoldering shouts of
muddy river water

we stood

on a dirtfilled bridge
hugging goodbyes
"seeing your life flash before your eyes"

cut strings
with the cold spring greens

I love movies.
I don't get to watch them enough.
Once in a while I get lucky though.
I don't know how great the movie was, but truly enjoyed watching  "In Her Shoes"
At the end of the movie there was a wedding scene, where "i carry your heart with me(i carry it in" by e.e. cummings was read...
--so heartfelt.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it )anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

e.e. cummings
"Happiness is only real when shared".....from Into the Wild
