On life and its vagaries

The island Express

with 8 comments

These are just a few thoughts which crossed my mind when I was on a train called the Island express. It’s not very deep, but it will suffice for the day I think!

The island Express

You see, I like this combination

Of an island and an express

Though the vision conjured up by them

Is only of a train……

Let us go even beyond that

Into the realm of pure math’s

And be very Pythagorean

To believe in pretty numbers

An island is a geographical-

Aberration or phenomenon

An isolated fragment of land

Totally limited and circumscribed

And a train is something which

Runs on parallels which never meet

But expects to continue on them

As long as it does ply

So where do the two meet other than

In our imaginations …………
