Ride the Poetry Train

The journey on this train takes place in the dark, starlit cabins full of images

Rush through the night collecting emotions, memories, deeper instincts

Collecting these soul-shaper consciousness experiences into words takes place

In the dining car over tea and coffee in the morning, and in the lounge all day

Poets sit in silence to straighten out the prose that spills onto the pages

Comparison is healthy, normal, and confusing as each work grows into itself

The train is full of poets yet each one of us has a different destination and fate

In prompts, styles, discussions and reverie we join in a common mission

To bring forth the poetry that only we as poets can bring up from the mine

History holds poets and potters in high regard, finding all the meaning

Of civilization in broken ceramic chards and discarded recorded words
