Across…

Daily Prompt: Bookworms

Under, over, around, beside… but sometimes you just have to go across. Cross that bridge when we come to it? There’s only going to be another one right after it. Life, continually opening up in chasms at our feet. Sometimes small enough to summon our courage and leap over the unplumbed depths, sometimes so wide that we can only turn aside and find a new route. But often we’re given a bridge to cross. Sometimes broad and straight and steady, sometimes  narrow, a rope bridge swaying in the breeze. Sometimes we leave them for others to follow, and sometimes we burn them, continuing on alone, never to return. 

I’m looking across a chasm now. Too wide to jump, and I’m not certain this bridge will hold my weight…
