Beyond Window 8

Post  mikeschultz on Sat Apr 28 2012, 06:12

I

I stand on the platform
Between the outbound tracks,
Listening to hear the whistle
Blow loud and long behind me.


II

What was it Mr. Frost told us
About the path least taken,
How he had taken it and how
“That has made all the difference”?

Possibilities exist until a choice
Is made, and one path chosen
All others are not and disappear,
As evaporated epiphanies.

Trains, like the people, those
Who ride them and those
Who drive them follow the rails

Main lines beget spurs, and spurs
Beget more spurs, branches
Of the tree of America’s life blood.


III

direction and view
a reality persists
beyond our own perceptions

How many of us have stood at the crossroads and looking in every direction feel there is no good choice? How do we choose? Is it fate, karma or kismet at play when we laugh?

which pathway to choose
so many without sign posts
how is one to know

I stand on the platform in the middle of the tracks and save a photographic image of the tracks moving away revealing various paths, sidings, I think they call them.

I find myself often unsure of which direction to take, but sometimes I am pleased to just be, at the sidings of a dusty, desolate crossroads ...for however long not really wanting either path..

Road To Nowhere





It always seems to be
I walk the same old track
Down the road to nowhere
Not knowing when to turn back

Deep inside of me
The feelings are quite strong
But I look into the distance
And the road goes on and on

Always has the same beginning
At the start the will is strong
But after traveling for some time
You realize it's very long

The road to nowhere keeps going
No turnings left or right
Once you start you must go on
Traveling day and night

I keep going because I must
No matter how much time I spend
Keep on the road to nowhere
Until I reach the end
