A Sojourn

I am on this train
It is called life
It is never late
Reaching its destination

The journey
Is what you make of it.
The people you meet
The outside you see

The inside
that you see or not
To all an exprience
they remember.

Knowing the journey
A reason to travel
Distance no object
Destination unsure

Then that station
you are going to.
A place so new
The many questions

Then that first step

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
I was thinking about what is home and someone's reply to Joe became tangled in the weave, Yours Ian

loved trains
still
and then when I rode them
our single rail line through our
area...

Final trip
we all make

This poem is a great write
succinct and there

Thank You

Like that last line the best

we should all celebrate if
we can and have mobility
the first steps

ceremonies
are celebrations
reverance
importance

(we are All important)

Thank You!

For your visit I was waiting for loved to come in to change the title LOL
We had the steam trains going through our village when we were children.
My friend that left at his stop had a licence to drive steam trains he built model ones that were beautiful, each tiny piece made to exact size and shape.
I have one of his models here but it is one of the Bounty, the ropes and every tiny detail is exact as he made things to his standard.
I am finding it hard as to what to write about, many things seem mundane of late.
I think I will have to return to Spiritual things for a while.
You take care young Wolf as the season of Spring is upon us.
Yours Ian.T

the same train sir
a good reminder there that this is only a temporary phase and the
questions !! They are many and we must make sure that we are
ready with the answers.
The title is too expressive !!

Really lovely to hear from you.
Yes we are all on the same train.
It is sad that others in the world cannot see that in the next seat is another person of the world.
I was sorry to see that you were sad at visiting your home in Palestine, young lady, those that torment others in this world will not reap that loving harvest that we who think with others have.
It is really lovely to have someone as yourself walk with us and write with us, thank you,
Yours Ian.

So beautifully expressed. I can feel myself sitting on that train journeying to forever
Hope you do not think of it often

I fear not this journey I am on, my friends are there on this journey and when I reach my correct Station there are many that will be there to greet me, it is complex and if you wish I will PM you some of the other bits.
Thank you for your visit, it is only when you reach your correct station that for ever begins and it is really lovely but there is no hurry we have so much to do before then, you more so than me lol.
Take care, Yours Ian.T
