Inner Rhyme


Rhythm of the rails relaxing and rolling

Like the waves rocking the boat’s hull

Taking advantage of life it’s soothing

Passengers around me complain it’s dull


The conductor yells, “Syracuse next stop ”

Automatic memory grabbing luggage

Adrift again, floating at the station’s drop

From two rails to one to the end of my voyage

Turning the Page

Reading my novel, I wait for the train
Dreaming of my destination
I know that I know it must be there
As I keep going from station to station

I can’t keep track of all the end of the lines
That I’ve passed by without a blink
I’ve spent some time at every town
I can imagine of what you must think

I know I’ll know, when it comes up the line
It doesn’t matter what my age
I’ve been riding now for forty years
Soon I’ll turn the page
