POETIC THURSDAYS (47)

MY TRAIN JOURNEY: A POEM BY ME

Me enjoying the scenery outside.
Started on a journey with family, waiting for the train. 
Sipping a cup of hot coffee, reminiscing my childhood days again. 
My train pulled into the station and I clambered to get a window seat. 
My daughter, too, pines for the seat by the window. Isn't that really sweet? 

Yippee! Both of us got to sit comfortably by the window and watched the station receding. 
And our joy knew no bounds, when the train started speeding. 

Watched the cows grazing on the green fields, 
The farmers sweating it out to produce great yields. 
Little children waved at us with their friendly smiles. 
Observed the passing buildings and appreciated their architectural styles. 


Lush green trees and surrounding hills, 
Do make some memorable stills. 
I sighed when I noticed a beautiful lake. 
The clear blue sky with fluffy white clouds was the icing on the cake. 
The tea vendors shouting to sell their tea. 
We watched people boarding and de-boarding for an eternity. 

I remember traveling with my family by train. 
What would I not give to go back to those days again! 
Our dad would spoil us with snacks and comics. 
And make us laugh with his jokes and silly tricks. 
Yet, he died while traveling by train. 
Leaving us in the sea of gloom and pain. 


I miss hearing his silly translation and laughter. 
But I am still and would always be his daughter. 
It may still hurt but I will never give up on my love for train. 
I will keep traveling the rest of my life, again and again. 

I decided to capture a small glimpse of the scenery while the train was still moving. 




Moments of nature captured on train.
