The bogies – some full,

some empty, yet others

half full,

have ideas, notions, themes,

waiting to be taken up

and developed.

Along life’s tracks

a few of them are abandoned,

and fresh ones

welcomed aboard;

indeed some just climb on

to the train as its

doors are never locked.

Where is the destination,

one may ask.

There is actually none

since as long as

the thought-generating engines

are at work

something gets created always

even as the train trudges along

trying its best to avoid

all interruptions,

sometimes even ignoring

the signals that say
