Diamond In The Swamp: Pt. 2

Diamond In The Swamp: Pt. 2 short poem

Photo by vl8189

From the darkened waters where for
ages they have roamed and toiled
the fishermen, bobbing in their canoes
with the rippling silent ocean waves, looked at
the rays from the massive concrete
superstructure dangling overhead
it was like the heavens have come to men

Stretching out from the dark surrounding swamps
and loping into the sky and arcing into the far horizon
and being swallowed up by nightly gloom
the diamond bridge over the Bonny river displays
the splendor of an architectural masterpiece

East/West Coastal Road Dream, Is It still alive?
