Train of Thought

Steaming locomotive painted
black like the smoke it was blowin’,

that train of thought gathered too much
momentum. Unable to stop, it ran

over another bound with her own
chain of thought.

Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent
or praiseworthy—
think about such things.
(Philippians 4:8)

(This poem was inspired by this one here.)

One response to “Train of Thought

  1. Is it not seeing life in motion
    when words become part of a person
    and expressed in a new way
    and they become part of another person
    to be expressed in a new way…etc…

    words are with us
    for a moment
    and then they move on

    thoughts become words
    words are shared
    echos of life touched
