I enjoy train rides and observing the countryside as the train winds it’s way over the tracks. This free-verse poem was created as I observed my fellow passengers.
Lots of chitter chatter
Interspersed with occasional laughter
Some lost in the woods of their own thoughts
Countryside overshadowed with bold sunshine and clear blue skies
Fields prepped for spring planting
Plant a relationship
Make its furrows deep
Sow the seeds of love
Water with nurture
Fertilize with tender care
Look for sprouts of appreciation
And blooms of giving
Listen for words of need
Reach for the warm touch
Smell the fragrance of freshness
Taste the luscious fruit borne
Do you enjoy train rides?
What memories or thoughts do they bring to mind?
