Anticipation: Train Ride of Life


Riding in the train

excitement in the air

anticipating the journey

living life with a flair


Slight breeze

through the open window

train chugging along

reaching for tomorrow


Trees and wildlife

beauty along the tracks

living in the moment

unable to go back


Always anticipating

hard to enjoy the day

so much life around

worry gets in the way


The train of life

continuously flowing

so many adventures

the sun is glowing


Train slowing down

a sharp turn around the bend

time to reflect

coming toward the end


Life is beautiful

filled with family and friends

learned so much on this ride

living it fully until the end

  1. My dream is a train trip through the Northwest. I love trains because they remind me of life, meaning at any moment we are moving toward a destination, have arrived at a destination, or just starting the journey. Lovely post.

    • Thanks for sharing. Trains are so much fun to ride while traveling. That picture was taken on a scenic train ride in North Carolina. Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful day!
