Voices on the Bridge


Voices on the Bridge at Pontypridd Museum.

What a venue for a night of poetry readings and music! Surrounded by Miners Lodge Banners and overlooked by a portrait of Lady Charlotte Guest! A successful night with a great turnout!



Bridges aren’t just about getting somewhere

in this age of having to get somewhere

or to be somebody whatever that means.


Bridges are about connections

about joining one side to another

to join divides and separations.


Bridges span different views

bridges connect generations

make things  come together

make old things new

bridges make life possible

bridges span and connect

bridges aren’t about divisions

bridges join and mend

the gulfs between us

help us speak to one another

allow us to bring things in

allow us to take things out

allow us to meet and share

allow us to see things anew

to span divides, connect, renew.


Bridges are life givers

so let’s join together

and not let divides

part us from life

or keep us away

from one another.


Bridges give meaning

so let’s build bridges together.
