Train to Nowhere

Boredom - Photography Kenia Cris

the distance between mind
and reality
is like white space 
 framing our every thought
our every action 
crossing borders 
borders best left uncrossed 


  1. the imagination can take us to some very interesting places...
    we cant stay there though...
    def an interesting little i had to ponder just a bit...

  2. Perhaps some things are best left uncrossed ~ Happy Sunday Helen ~

  3. Sometimes the mind protects us - Really is a thought provoking poem.

  4. A great take on the collage, Helen. This white space can be really comfortable sometimes. :)

    Kiss. <3

  5. Ooh, those last two lines, Helen...ooh, yes.

  6. Wow! This is so profound.. really gives me something to think about.

  7. Ha! Super charming! Idle hands! Very nice. (I am smiling.) K.

  8. Pretty picture and great words.

  9. Amen to that! (though sometimes it is necessary to cross those borders). Thank you for sharing this.

  10. The train to nowhere — white space, static, and little puffs of nothingness.

    You should have taken The Train to Morrow.

    Now let me see if I have heard you right
    You'd like to go to Morrow and return tomorrow night
    You should have gone to Morrow yesterday and back today,
    For the train that goes to Morrow is a mile upon its way
    If you had gone to Morrow yesterday now don't you see,
    You could have gone to Morrow and returned today at 3
    For the train today to Morrow if the schedule is right,
    Today it gets to Morrow and returns tomorrow night.

    The words are from Lew Sully (1898). The Kingston Trio and the Muppets have done versions of it.

  11. This is intriguing...reality can be a bit disarming can't it? Well done, Helen.
