Rusted red through overthrows of paint’s defense and season’s houndings –
Frame on frame, let math be done! Infinitum so resolved,
echoes man in progress steeped until all progress has dissolved –
Yet bridge, it may, from here to there, cross time or distance or conquest’s gap,
it echoes pure impurity! Steadfast and placed in nature’s lap,
whose lowering sun and softened rays bathe the structure whimsical,
pronounces lines Pythagoras’ ways, distorts to art the physical!

across a labyrinth web of light, may unfold my very history –
Here stretched to infinitum –
Here begged by sun, do angles lie –
Each step dissolves a minimum,
which I transcend through, by and by…
‘Tis but a bridge…
… and just the sun …
Yet moments mixed in witness there pull seams where I, and both, do run…

Thank you… i truly appreciate your comments.
Thank you very much!
