The Wisdom Of The Fallen Pebble.

Spread the love

Blog Post About This Poem.

Barefooted upon the old railroad he walked,
Through known paths, planks and overgrown moss,
Step over the step slowly through blazing sun he moved,
The shadow amazed the curious squirrel and summer flowers.

Mind of him through unfulfilled dreams wandered,
The galloping time fell back to take a breath and looked,
Some passion unknown to all to his adventure gave fuel,
Ah’, the forgotten youth woke up in his shadow and danced.

Mind of him passed through the past faster than light,
Steps laid felt a rumble underneath upon the old tracks,
Smell of ashes, fire, and grease filled the air along with sirens,
Steps never left the tracks as trains through him passed.

The paused time of present in awe for its space looked,
Nowhere it fit as past and present became an illusion,
Some train wreck that brought down the bridge stopped,
The lonely man’s dream walk upon the railroad.

The roaring river gave a new meaning about time and space,
Oh’, the unknown future flourished in the mind filled with peace,
When turning around the tiny pebble that fell into the river he looked,
Ah’, where it will go who may pick that pebble someday he thought.

Before the plunge one shiny ray the pebble gave that told,
Love lives with the fuel of hope in everlasting greenery,
No dream will drown without a fulfilling thought at least,
And hope always in future ways and future days reside.
