Orange hue, or: Hanging nimbly

A “Bridges” poem

An ode to the Golden Gate Bridge

"International Orange" its famed vivid hue;
Visible through thick fog; bold against vast skies blue;
Bay to ocean...
In earthquakes and strong winds it vibrates flexibly;
This great, sturdy marvel, hanging nimbly...
Made for motion.

‘What do you see’ Prompt #163

This “bridges” poem was written For Sadje’s weekly #WDYS prompt.

Sadje offers us this photo (to the right) taken by Mohamed Almari (Pexels.com) of the Golden Gate Bridge, as seen from the shore. There is a dramatic sky in the background.

Writers are to use this image as inspiration to produce art.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
