Dante and an image
A kind of a bridge
that spans to the side
and prevents slipping off an edge

One can see thru it
and into beyond
and yet there’s a comfort
to staying this side of the pond

Maybe it was an ice rink
with frozen waterfall
Don’t know what the danger was
just recognized the call

The safety, the safe harbour
where one can explore
Seeing beyond
before opening that door
