In your smile

i find my heart

awake

and ready

to hold the hearts of others.


Love is a train

ready to go.


Its fuel,

cheap really,

considering.

Another shorter work, but thought provoking I hope.

      And yes my awesome Audrey your train always stay on track and it's a smooth pleasant ride. You have the heart and soul of a true poet too.

      I am not a poe-it. I am a guy who just writes words.

      You are a sublime writer indeed and hubbravo from the epi-man.

      This was great Audrey, a train, taking us where we want to go. Of course like Gypsy I'm hearing that song in my head!

      Voted up and awesome.

      Voted up and beautiful. Somewhere in the back of my mind I hear the words of the song, Love train, love train....

    • rebeccamealey profile image

      Rebecca Mealey 4 years ago from Northeastern Georgia, USA

      It is pretty. It reminds me of that old soul song, Love Train. You probably have no idea what I am talking about, and your poem is much more intellectual.

      You do leave the door open & the track free for each passenger to see & board his/her own truth on that train you suggest, Audrey. Ingenious!

      "In your smile i find my heart awake and ready to hold the hearts of others"

      Indeed when we are in love we love the world and that train journey takes us a whole place.

      Love the depth of this Audrey.

      I agree....love can sometimes be overrated, because it can come and sometimes go just as quickly. A great share, Audrey.

      Audrey,

      Interesting metaphor. Love is train, but this train does not run smoothly, to lodge and dislodge passengers.

      Everything has been said Audrey...that is what I love about poetry, sometimes less is more, and it certainly is here...loved it:-))

    • moonfroth profile image

      Clark Cook 4 years ago from Rural BC (Canada) & N of Puerto Vallarta (Mexico)

      Love the closing stanza!..............and the cautionary note therein! An almost playful reminder that life is good, esp. considering the alternative---or the classic, "All good things cometh to he who waiteth, as long as he who waiteth worketh like hell while he waiteth". It's a gorgeous little poem Audrey, I'm just feeling playful. The bloody SUN is shining! We haven't seen it for three weeks, midnight last night was 5 degrees below zero, today it hailed hailstones about 3.8" diameter, then snowed furiously for two hours, now the sun is out. Spring, ha! Flowers. ha!
