Welcome aboard!

At a station stop in Northern Ontario, a canoe is unloaded, as well as our provisions from the baggage car. The train will pick us up, a few days later. The train departs, and we watch. It was a mere fantasy, leaving only two little silver trails behind.

The wilderness rejoiced at it's passing, hungering to reclaim that space taken with hammers wrung loud, a cacophony against the quiet symphony yelling loud against. Suddenly, it was quiet.

We began to hear. Quiet, at first, then growing louder. It was a symphony, beckoning, beckoning, sweet.....


“Wild Concert”

Morning awakened, songs softly call
Wilderness part of, pines majestic tall
Rhythms dawn embraced, new day begun
Little fire stoked, unobtrusive, anticipate fun

Pristine mists invite, lake mirrored glass
Pines whisper approval, stately standing class
Wisps of smoke, fire small, coffee held in bask
Contented calm within soul, all of ever ask

Labour is expected, yet appreciation calm
Mere guest within forest, chorus herald psalm
Pristine lake, wee creatures, gentle canoe launch
Careful, cautious, gentle, aura cherished never lost

Gentle is the paddle dipped, disturbed small ripple
Silence of intruder, recognized thought simple
Wilderness unconquered, rhythms learned please
Bled loud, whispered cries, pines brought to knees

Her spirit unforgiving, welcoming strong soul
Perished small in wilderness, rape objective goal
She is ragged, tough, with rapids coursing veins
Nurtured to Her bosom, creature’s call refrains

Offered is refreshment, northern waters release
Rock hard granite, shelter prepared one at ease
Bulrushes savoured delicacy provided eat
Disturbing never, delicate balance meet

Wolves howl approval, to some sound attack
Northland unforgiving, weak not invited back
Perhaps it is the balance, natural, forest floor
Rhythms silent plethora, discoveries in store

'Number'

She came to him, or rather he walked up to Her.
She was silent, quiet appearing forlorn, in self
She was beautiful, once, some time past perhaps

Careful was made, Her lines round, yet sleek
Considered at length, once powerful, abandon
Credible, however Her dance pattern with grace
Caress soft touch Her curves round paint glimmer

Rapture kindled, a fire built unseen within two
Restored beautiful, hungering lustful each, other
Resplendent each in each other's dreams carried
Renditions poetic play upon the mind without reason

Artistic dreams cherished each that walk there met
Attention meticulous given, dancing both freely
At length, each could serve each other's need full

Perhaps, dreams might be fulfilled to dance again!
Perchance that these two should meet, each dream!
Persuasive power held, each to hold onto each dream...

Scrap.

Scrap Iron......lotta' dollars there...

Wait! No!

Dancing, please!

Fire scrapper's torch was lit, for there was money in scrap metal....
Rekindle fire hope to dance free disintegrated in illusions past
She beckoned at His heart, yet softly quiet, stalwart surrender
His hand was placed on Her side, for a moment, fire still lit held

It was a long moment.

He shut off the torch, and stood there, marveling at Her beauty
He quit. That very day, but not on Her, rather the ridiculous
After all, there was not a lotta money in scrap anyway, after all
In the quiet, imagination stirred as She worked silent on His spirit

Welcome aboard!

The journey of life progresses, about a wee train. Imagine, in fact, in spite of drought locally with fail crops searching earnestly for water, sweet tea was sipped, gazing at rose buds, beyond thorns.

Momentum gathered, as speed embraces new destinations, travel, discovering, encouraging.....

It's like the 'little engine that could', regardless of the train of baggage, or the hill faced. It didn't matter...

'Namaste', dear riders, go not silent into that good night.

Welcome aboard!

It wqas pointless, considered notwithstanding attack
Thoughtless were those jeers that wore overalls mask
Sleek were driven wheels, connected with fire fuel shine
Fire encourage labour, to dance free upon main line

Crew at the ready, each uniformed held in place
Locomotive polish shine, with power fire embrace
Her power never hinder, throttle open gentle held
Speed upon the silver twin, upon magic within spelled

Some thought she was a little one, who's day come an' gone
Diesel fuel spill around, yet gather together on the lawn
Her boiler fill with water, tender fill with desire coal
Bright lit is locomotion desire, written from the soul!

Oh! Watch the bitterness, as locomotion carries depart
Pastures new horizons, begun sheep graze new start
Always hated bitterness, longq to conduct sweet train
Magic always felt escape, there in symphony refrain.....

In Two words, no less.....


All Aboarrrrrrdddddddd!

Welcome Aboard!

That acrostic poetry is interesting. Thought I might try my hand at it.

Cheers!

Tom.

It was the second, welcome with smile timeless
Notwithstanding pasts, postulates platform dress
Transpose, forgotten never there, train of thought
Energy free, with flown wing magic brought
Resolved, be it gentle interaction that discovers
Everlast perfume, blossom colourfull flower
Stalwart, flown, free magic gentle wings spread
Tribal drum sounds, in dream sleep, awaken led

Shall we know ghosts? First, inspire light switch on
Hope full, sunset colour display full moon, play upon
Energetic, with strength of form, powerful is delight!
locomotion soft held, fire fed dance free with moonlight

Just sippin' some tea, here.

*smiles*

Begun song, at the break of dawn
Inspire awaken to new morning
Refresh each day heard quiet heart
Direct call cherish, calm cheer start

Simplicity of concert envelopes sweet
Orchestra play with dawn colours greet
Notwithstanding lawless purpose expose
Greater things accomplish cherish red rose

Welcome aboard:

Ya' know, sometimes it's like standing on the platform, waving frantically, and wondering why the train doesn't move. The head end crew sees the wave, yet doesn't understand why there isn't any fuel, or water in the tender. Pretty simple really, but neither understand.

Heck!

Think you got problems?

I'm still confused about four line poetry!

Forgot manic stare
Often from unaware
Uniform shine wear
Resplendant if dare

Well, anyway, notwithstanding pestulance, with may be observed from time to time, on the journey of life, wondered aloud is the destination, curious?

Never forgotten, actually.

That call to all aboard. It was simple, with fuel, water, stuff like that, with Ops orders that had no room for error or continuence, or wee etceteras in brief to dismiss thought.

But what do I know, eh?

Lots.

An ancient time piece is extracted with care from the right vest pocket. The crew has fueled the engine, polished and shined. It is a symphony, well practiced.

There is calm.

There is confidence, with smiles.

All Aboarrrrrrrd!!!!!!

(The movement begins)

Welcome aboard!

Well, it is important to have something positive here: thus, I thought I might present a writing for all to enjoy, hopefully. Please take the time to discard your armour, and drop your sword. That will help you a lot.

Please try. Be encouraged.

Ready? Close your eyes, and imagine. You are on a platform embarking on a new journey, clutching your suitcase. The whistle blows, and a bell is heard rung, approaching. Initial fears dissipate in excitement of new discovery, an orchestra playing soft, the symphony.

Imagine.

This wee Poem is written of love:

“Tough Love”

She was tough as nails, or some might thought
Strength carry within soul, false never brought
Emerald Isle pasture simple harbour sought claim
Brought tears flow to water well, encourage flame

D ixie heart land, yet hailed from northland near
I ndescribable, like rock cliffs mountains sheer
X rate unthinkable, yet desire mountain top explore
I nterest develops, southern bell rung with in store
E nthusiasum climbs, team with discover depth more

Armour held discarded, but with simple touch
Thimble perhaps symbolic, yet means so much
Fly with me, My Darling, in dreams never land
Violin concerto played together with baby grand!

Cheers!

Tom.

Whew!

Glad to be aboard the train, again, leavin' that place!
It was dark, dank and, well, like a prison. That sucks.

Of course fourplay expand twelve
experience curious with in delve
matter little with words thrown lost
canvass decorate with paint on tossed

Fore score, or perhaps simple foreplay
Six lines or more brought to angst foray
Two many battles endure with sinew scar
One battle was enough, learned to see far.

~~~~~~~~

And now, back to Dixie.....


~~~~~~~~~~~

(with squiggly lines, and shat like that, so that people will know that I am changing gears, in thought, and stuff, because long ago the girl I once knew was imprisoned in a tower of Her own choosing, and the horse ridden tripped in the forest, perhaps, on a twig, at midnight, or just before sixteen twenty..... )

I digress.

~~~~~~~~~~


In five lines, no less......

D electable invite soft sweet
I ntellect sensuous laughter
X zylophone symphony sweet
I nterest culminates gather smile
E xcitement grows speed all the while....

Ah. Nothing like 'Dixie' land.....

Welcome aboard!

Often, there is strength displayed,
yet surprising. It's funny, somehow,
not to be confused with humour or
simple entertainment, struggles that
ensue.

Out of the mouths of babes, sometimes,
comes wisdom in innocence, yet strength.

I wrote a poem about it: in fact lots of poems,
and drew lots of pictures about that as well....

Think of it this way, please:

The locomotive pulling the train, is merely
an inanimate object, that together, two crew
members shine. Each take care to look after that,
sharing both responsibilities at the throttle, and firing
the engine.

Each crew member has a job to do, depended upon.
The engine must be fired, well oiled, with an enginneer,
both experienced and focussed on the line ahead,
conscientious.

The Conductor must be confident in command, and
each team member must be confident in that ability.
It is a team effort, for no one can command, lest the
train wreck, borne of false momentum.

The aftermath is unthinkable.

Cheers!

Tom.

Anticipation’

Reflecting day’s begginning, sunrise reflected gleam
Multicolour reflected from that without painted dream
Dampness of night evaporating at its own slow pace
Crew to various tasks employed oblivious to life’s race

Silver shining, in truth no colour of its own
Reflecting aura, colours of the morn
Prepared is the streamliner, locomotive fed
Conductor on the platform is recognized as head

Platform is pristine in early morning light
Activity of each crew member, preparation flight
Porters shined and polished, orders read at head end
Preparation all and each for pleasant journey to spend

Passengers all boarded to each there own with care
Anticipating journey with now little time to spare
Conductor glances at ancient watch, taken from his vest
About to call the ‘All Aboard’..begin this practiced journey best…

Reaching for the step box, to toss in coach aboard
Eye is caught by lone figure, moving confidently toward
Little One is mighty, although aged no more than six or so
Captivated by conductor, the train will not proceed to go

‘Mr Conductor’ says the little One with eyes and smile bright
‘I’ve come to see my Daddy, on this train he left one night.
He’s big and strong and handsome and wore his uniform
Miss his story reading while snuggled safe and warm.’

‘This is the train he got on and I’ve come to get him back
Please call out for him, his friends know him as ‘Jack’ ‘
Pleading eyes of confidence brought conductor to his knees
Pointless of all efforts desired, this little One’s request to please

Train holds him not captive, aboard in either heart nor soul
Shot in the line of duty, focussed on commander’s goal
Moisture from conductor’s eye, taken wee One by hand
Walk along the platform..’Y’know, your Dad was grand…’

Welcome aboard!

Always love the principle
garden nurture, grow strong still
little smiles, team effort aboard
expense strength with all afford

Labour expend not on self
matter small, acquiring wealth
distinguish encourage unique team
realistic nurture achieve each dream

Little matter to some 'thought'
with money paid position bought
gentle calm heard forest in tune
starlit orchestra, glowing moon

Gentle spirit, calm gentle please
observe pestilence, power tease
command false challenge with saw
challenged perfect command “Draw”.

“Prove it.”

Apparently, if one can do 'two lines',
it is an open licence to write 'chapters'.

Well, there you have it.....

hey T!
so good to see!
train got rusty
eventually
on its 'ole steel track
no more making the sound
of clickety-clack
no more feeling
each and every crack
in the fiber of her seats
where the passengers would greet
the once handsome and sleek
conductor who traveled each car
like a long-forgotten star
wishing to see their empathy
wishing that they be happy
maybe wishing to dance free
under the dome that once shone
with love...

Machines made of pure metal
Labour men source from Earth
Little creatures with not mettle
Oil with care and value worth

These little Ones once so bright
Fell with careless neglect forlorn
Labour scrap torch small fire light
Progress from within heart torn.

'Harvest'

Labour harvest iron ore
Mind from depth upon shore
Steel resolve twin parrellel
Whistle song from wee sea shell.

Always nurtured, wee small flame
Lioness spirit, never to tame
Rises she kindled firebox roar
Strength along the twin rail soar

Pixie magic release in trance
Along the rail bed entice dance
Glowing brightly powerful fed
Labour many from heart felt led.
