Train ride

Rolling hills in a desert coloured style
dust clouds lift into the air
as the train passes by

Ghostly giant trees hold their pose
Rivers running dry break my heart
Dry and sunny says the weather report

Sheep gather under the shade of a tree
move into the city
the reservoir looks low

Pull up at the station
renovation here

The city train holds many stories
and even more discarded newspapers
mobile phones are the tune of the day
human interaction is rare

Off the train into the suburbs
cars buzzing by
City cafe soothes my thirst
a drink with family

I will rest tonight
possums frolick outside
maybe it will rain
