The Entrusted Dream

Photo courtesy: Nia Janiar
(A railway which will lead the old train to the blue sky.... ;)....)

I have entrusted this dream
to an old train, leaving for the far away sky

Let me pray that this dream
will safely arrive in the far blue sky
and cannot trace the way back home;
for it only causes pain in the heart of mine
to nourish it myself in this earth of mankind

Written for my friend Nia Janiar, who took the above photo and asked me to make it a photo prompt for a poem. This photo was taken during her trip in Cepu, Blora, Central Java, Indonesia.

I loved the photo and the poem was wonderful as well. Made me wish the sky outside my window was blue, instead of slate gray, and the sun was shining so I could write a letter with all my wishes, not just for me, but for each person I love and then tie the letter to balloon and send it to heaven to be read by the angels. Silly I know, but I'll admit to having done it a time or two. ;-) Be blessed.
