Actually this bridge is called The Snohomish River Drawbridge. It spans the Snohomish River in Washington State between the towns of Everett and Marysville The under shot of the edifice is a pretty easy approach, but I think it is a good angle.

POETIC CONSIDERATIONS

“Human beings, in a sense,
may be thought of
as multidimensional creatures
composed of such poetic considerations

as the individual need
for self-realization,
subdued passions for
overwhelming beauty,
and a hunger for meaning…

Poem: Religious Brands

It’s really shameful to acknowledge
the divisiveness of all denominations;
a continuing lack of understanding is…
diluting Love’s message of Salvation.

The ongoing promotion of religious brands
has not convinced or impressed the World;
the wholeness of God’s holy Word must be
embraced by everyone, as His boys and girls.

These current disagreements and hostilities
of religious debates waste our precious time;

Poem: Finding Holy Ground

Finding Holy Ground frequently,
should be much easier these days;
isn’t it wherever we happen to go,
since His presence abides with us?

Can our speech be free of covetousness?
Will we learn to be…

Poem: Y-O-L-O

You Only Live Once,
is an idealized concept,
fashioned by the foolish
and selfishness of heart.

Choosing to be self-deceived,

Poem: Moral Disposition

O Lord, how I appreciate having my character,
free from the carnal lust of mammon; for I,
don’t have to be concerned with avarice, greed
or the presence of possessions… that I can eye!

I’m truly thankful for my current circumstance,
knowing that You have promised to never fail me;
therefore, I’ll trust Your continued support-
since I’ve been grafted into… The Living Tree!

Having been comforted and encouraged, with boldness
and confidence,…

You may or may not agree with Mike Lipkin’s analysis of global trends in the video below but his enthusiasm is infectious.  Alright, it’s a little bit scary sometimes too but mostly his excitement itself is exciting and when you check out what he’s saying objectively a lot of it makes sense whether you like the goats and sheep thing or not. Hope that didn’t sound culturally insensitive.  Apologize if it did.  Here’s the video with Lipkin’s YouTube description below…
