empty train

When you go for a walk
don’t go empty handed:
carry a camera, a notebook and a pen
or even a cane, a column of wind may come
and agitate the trees,an angel may
descend and whisper to you,
or an angry beast may engage your path
the experience can be overwhelming
but short lived with helplessness
and apprehension,regrets
returns late like a train, old
and rusted, bereft among the ruins.IMG_0329
