Haiga 627 Vincent Tripi haiku - cover bridge

Haiku by Vincent Tripi (USA). Artwork by myself.
When I first read this haiku, I did not know what a covered bridge was. I did web-search then and found many links to the word. I found that the wooden bridge was covered with roof so it lasts long time.There was a movie "The Bridge of Madison County", too.

I have walked through tunnels many time, but not the covered bridge. I can only imagine, but with the cover bridge, you come out to more or less the similar scene, like in this haiku. With tunnel, the change is usually more dramatic, like in Yasunari Kawababata's famous novel "Snow Country", which begins with this sentense "The train came out of the long tunnel into the snow country"
Going though a tunnel transports you to another world.

cover bridge and tunnels - have not seen the difference from the perspectives you discuss here, Kuni-san - it is interesting...the haiga and the expansive thoughts :)
