Under The Burrard Bridge


Under The Burrard Bridge

Under The Burrard Bridge
by George C. Palaganas a.k.a. Cool Dela Peña
I have seen it only on a movie the first time
on Forget Paris claiming this is the bridge
of another classic called An American in Paris
for I didn't know it, until upclose I behold it.
Glide under the balance of serenity
get drowned in passion of illuminated desire
hold all inequities on the palm of your hand
like a drop of time in the stillness of the hourglass.
Capture the silence of numerous rendezvous
of smiling thespians and charlatans in the show
romance at night time glancing on its apogee
reminds you of contours, of buns supine.
Lips can be sealed, theirs of admiration
unmindful of the chill, a path of commendation
to sit on the benches in exhilirated jubilation 
for under the Burrard Bridge, a joy of inclinations.

I like how you play with words some of them i have to go and look up to define the meaning, Good work

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
