Whimsical Perambulation

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007 UTC

This a tale, of a dream, of a train.
Not any machine, only plain and mundane.
Of joy and fantasy, a locomotive.
Cast with magic, without a motive.

Holding still, the world moves around it.
In present, and past, and future you’ll find it.
In order to spot it, you must not be searching.
Open your heart, and it won’t be hiding.
Calling your name with it’s touching “choo-choo,”
Sooner or later it’ll come across you.

Two girls and a boy, together were riding,
On the magical train late one evening.
Dreaming and laughing, and waving at strangers,
The magical train had delightful passengers.

Around and around the palace of dreams they sailed
kindling souls of bystanders with rapture thinly veiled
In the undaunted little blue car that cruised so far
Way beyond kiosk, coffee-house, and sushi bar.

The lights always glaring so jovial, so friendly,
Harmoniously gleaming on shoppes in an alley.
“A sweet surprise, what a twist!”
The children would say as they whirled through the mist.

The train was a-flying,
Over the people a-staring.
What a gaze! What a chance!
Magical train! An instant romance!

Once eager passengers, souls become oblivious.
However, the train, is ever so spacious.
Being inviting, you should wave at strangers,
As they might become the train’s future passengers.

    Heartwarming. Each word oozes poignancy, chimes with pure ebullient magic.

    We, who have departed from that world and returned to our own, no longer ride the train, but the train keeps on going, transcending the fabric of the mundane, piercing it like a magical needle, weaving dreams onto it. Even now, it glides forth still, leaving swirling trails of rainbows, unicorns, and pixi stix in its wake.

    A new day will bring new fanciful journeys, I don’t doubt. But for now, have some sweet reminiscence.
