The Train


The Train


The clickity clack

Of the train

Barreling down the track

Jars me from the stupor.

I’m whisked away

Caught in the speeding train.

The faces flashing

The pallid lights washing

Out all humanness.

A silver box shooting past

Catching what’s not rooted

In its whirling wind.

Pushing through to darkness

In the tunnels

Underneath and hidden from the world.

Life flashes and passes

As the train rolls on.

I’m trapped in the speed

Hopped up on the adrenaline

And the wind whipping me around.

Everything else becomes a blur

I’m only in this moment

Part of the racing train

Pure energy and speed

Gaining momentum and never turning back.

No time, no space to think.

Just to be

Speeding by.






In the air

I see the shimmer

Of life

The waves of energy

As they roll and wave off

Everything around.

The colors and the sparkles

Dance around us

As we walk through life.

They rub off on the ones

We meet.

Leaving energy prints

Like footprints in the sand.

An indent of our being.

I see and watch in wonder

And in awe

Of life force that surrounds

I am humbled to see how wondrous

It all can really be.
