Daydream Railroad

Daydream Railroad

A Poem by Heather

Feet against metal under ice
Walking nowhere with nowhere to be.
No one to see so metal and ice
Become constant companions
To walking nowhere feet.

Deep green left hanging
Brown, no one to see spectacle;
Crisp breaths of crisp air
Exhale, warmed wetness, into
The sky above metal under ice.

Formed a pattern one imprint
After one imprint in infinite seriation,
Beautiful array with nowhere to be.
White flakes explode with kicks
Aimed to cover no one to see patterns.

Blink, blink, dissolve, blink, blink.
Fade away metal and ice
Away with green and brown
Back into black emptiness.
I see I have somewhere to be.

we sometimes wander aimlessly, like a train on nowhere tracks...we dream, we daydream...but there is ice under our feet...and the train slips off the icy tracks...
sooner or later we find purpose and realize we do have a place to go, and we start the journey...
i really like your metaphor and how you carry it throughout the poem from beginning to end...
nice symmetry.

I enjoyed this. it brought on a certain imagery to me. Reminds me a bit of Indiana weather. Love the Hoosier state, not the winters so much. Lovely write

Thanks! We're a little warmer this weekend than it has been, hoping it sticks around
