All Aboard

Take
this day
examine it
hold it up to the light
check for flaws, irregularities
but by all means
use it
 
Minutes, hours may drag
but the years screech past
relentless a train

This is for Bjorn at dVerse Poets Pub who asked we write something to do with trains.  This is only a passing mention, but I think it still qualifies.

  1. Oh, I love this. Love the idea of examing the day for flaws – like a well worn jumper – and wearing it anyway. And the advice about days passing as compared to years is priceless. Beautifully done. You’ve a true gift for poetry, Mary 🙂
