I have always been fascinated by Bridges and think this one is particularly beautiful I found these pictures which have been painted as a mural at Harvey Nichols in Bristol .
Bridging The Gap
|Mural situated in Harvey Nichols Bristol|
There in all your majesty, steel and cables
Surveying lives and history
People crossed over,
They communicated and bartered,
Underneath cargo passed in ships
In full sail, sometimes chartered
Bridging areas yet uncharted.
Built for domestic economy,
Giving Bristol more autonomy,
In times when ships carried wines and slaves.
They bridged the enclaves and gorge
With cables and steel, which they had forged,
Bridging societies and economy .
Your beauty and majestic splendour
Now forever ours ,to admire and devour,
Your cables stretched and strained
Between those two sturdy towers
When things were constructed for industry
Bridging the gap from history.
Above now hot air balloons
Seasonally float by like sky flowers
People still admire the engineering feat
Art, society, history all converge and meet
Bridging the gaps seems now complete !
