A string of box cars clatter across the tracks – chugging, clanking, rattling,

Slowly creeping through the city, on a mission to somewhere,

What lies within those cars?

Is it something perishable, something necessary for life, life itself?

Surrounded by traversing wires in the sky,

Shrouded and dwarfed by the silos prepared to greet them,

Greeting other cars along the way,

A range of sizes and shapes, dotted and covered with graffiti,

The language of a transient, a poet, an artist, a soul,

Switching back and forth through the web the city weaves,

A tapestry filled with threads of life, if you look for them.

The city can be a lonely place, but when you let yourself,

You will see that life abounds in every square inch,

Open your eyes,

Look for the beauty,

Don’t let the outer appearance fool you.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
