One short journey, two thoughts…

1. Silly one first
Train train go away
Come again another day
Heart just wants to stay
No hard toil, just pure play

2. Slightly pensive one –
When the journey commences
we look behind
find nothing but
dust of our thoughts
hardship we brought
by thinking too much
not acting enough
before the moment has passed

  1. So many look behind them AB, and often find themselves stuck between stations . As they repeat the same old journey over and over… Once we let go of the Past we will then move forward more swiftly to the next destination…
    Life only gives us Lessons until we learn from them and let them go….
    So Let us commute free from the baggage we carry… And trust that our journey is mapped out..
    So full steam ahead… πŸ™‚ and lets enjoy the MOMENT of the ride!
    Blessings and Have a good weekend my friend


    1. Brilliant thoughts Sue, of course looking behind should only be for learning lessons and moving on and not sulking over what could have been πŸ™‚ I agree with your approach πŸ™‚


  2. The pictures are very beautiful.

    The second part of the poem is true – there is nothing to look back to but dust, especially if I let my emotions boil at the memory. I always have to remember to look forward all the time while learning from my past.


    1. I write what heart feels
      soul being peeled
      in the process
      dust and dirt
      with fate we flirt
      past daunts
      present haunts
      future all is left
      here we go

      thank you so much πŸ™‚


  3. I love trains! My nephew and I love to go train hunting. I know where all the train yards are so we go and he climbs on them and has a wonderful time! We love to walk on train tracks! They makes beautiful subjects I think! You track photos and train photo is beautiful!


    1. What a fascinating hobby, must be thoroughly enjoyable πŸ™‚ trains indeed make interesting places to observe lives of fellow human beings, imagining their daily rituals, jubilations, crises, tears and smiles, hugs and surprises.

      Thank you so much for visiting my most ordinary place and making it extraordinary πŸ™‚


  4. Another version could be:
    Train, train, go away,
    Come again another day;
    I just want to stop commutes,
    And, at home, to put down roots!

    Your No 2 is thought-provoking indeed.
