All a Bored and Escape to Imaginary Places, the Likes of Which You Have Never Seen

From my train of thoughts to yours.

All A Bored Find Refuge.

It's just pulling in 
The Imagination Express,
a quatrain of delight
near the conjunction of 
your stationary thoughts.
Its sing-song, clackety-clack
rhythms of life draw 
all poets near and far.

Flowing swiftly 
across the tracks
laid by poets of old, 
hammered out in 
long curved lines of steel,
each one identified by 
as number or letter
punctuated perfectly
in endless lines that 
weave their way
into your thoughts
across the remnants of trees.
which are the ingredients 
of a poets platform, 
A  Royal cannonball 
or an Olympia
of contemplation
speeding across 
the many spans of attention 
drawing sustenance 
from the liquid ink 
and  extract of a tanka 
that propels it
eager to  refuel 
your mind with  
pearls of wisdom
burning bright.

Each spark 
of inspiration
excites tiny children 
and adults alike,
where the clickety-clack 
of words infused
by poets welcome all.

Dr. Suess, and Mother goose,
mingle with Robert Frost,
on these trains of thought
beside Walt Whitman 
as they casually toss
sweet, words of joy across
the brain waves of 
all readers who've hungered 
since their loss.

Where two Roads diverge 
on leaves of grass,
and The cat in the hat with any luck sir, 
will most likely be your conductor,
please join us in the dining car, 
for Little Miss Muffet's curds and whey, 
and some of Jack Horner's pie 
our special today.
All A bored,
will find wonders here,
on an idyllic journey
over pastoral plains,
grab your claim tickets
for the dreams you will find
emerging from the 
sleeping berths
of writers awakening

See the sonnets 
in their bonnets,
herding each lambic
into a cattle car, 
just a pentameter away.

Grab your litotes 
and your laptops 
and climb aboard,
we'll be stopping near Sandburg,
for some lunch with Carl,
and visit Anne's bookstore 
on Bradstreet.

We will be long 
past tense by morning,
so grab a seat
next to an oxymoron,
who is smartly attired,
or if travel sickness plagues you,
sit with a paradox who can aid you.

Find a relaxing composition, 
and make friends with all,
"I never metaphor I didn't like."
Thus our epic journey begins,
enjoy the ride.
Tickets please!
