Poem: My Train Chugs On!

Rameshwer Singh

Rameshwer Singh








This is a chilly winter dawn,
White and dewy fragrance of a nascent  day
Imbibing  nocturnal dark,
Drizzling water pearls falling on the wet tracks
My train chugs on!

I look through the window
I realize it is a bend
Whole train as  my life I can see
With its masthead light  falling on the tracks
Entering into a new terrain,
And its tail light leaving behind
Trees,fields,lakes and
Far ascending mountains .
In between a lonely river flows on!

This is a chilly winter dawn,
My train chugs on!

Looking ahead through falling rain sheets on the tracks
I inhale the sailing feelings of freezing winds.
Entering into an era that will lead me
To a destination I know not,
To meet my beloved where and when I know not.
But green and red signals gazing through rain
Make me sure someone monitoring my journey,
Like a river Life will flow on!

This is a chilly winter dawn,
My train chugs on!

Me to serve, love
And make happy my journey mates
My life is being taken care of!
Thunderous lightening of the rumbling clouds
Descends  and melts into
My soul and makes
Eternal illumination on!

This is a chilly winter dawn
White and dewy fragrance of a nascent  day
Imbibing  nocturnal dark,
Drizzling water pearls falling on the wet tracks
My train chugs on!
