In the beginning

In the beginning

A magical notion
         a concept
in the beginning
         the Bridge belonged
to the mind
         an idea in suspension
a shape that gradually
         took shape
through the language used
         a language that grew
in complexity
         the language of dreams
and of calculation
         a measured language
that was transformed
         into designs
into meticulous drawings
         every nut and every bolt
a language engineered
         into a structure
an act of the imagination
         inserted into the reality
of the space that separated
         Brooklyn from Manhattan
a word made flesh
         born out of the material mind
