The love story of a boat …

PHOTO CREDITS : https://trablogger.wordpress.com/

A lonely ark , sits by the edge of the stream

that shimmers , under the silver moon beam

 It sways to  the rhythm of the ripples soft

whispering sweet nothings , as it gently laughs

The majestic trees rustle in the breeze

urging the boat , the moment to seize

‘For this night shall not come again..

 Confess your love to the passing train’

The ark hesitates , just hems and haws

And then it speaks , after a pregnant pause

‘My friends I know , you mean well for me

But will the lofty train , stop to see ?’

‘The train is a beauty , I have adored her long

Her slender form , and her high pitched song

As I watch her meandering and gliding past

My heart begins to beat…ever so fast’

The trees weep as they hear his plight

Such pure love , needs to see daylight

‘Oh, you love her so , then do not let her go

Shout , scream,  wave or row !’

‘Oh I am just a   wobbly little boat’

so saying , he began to clear his throat ;

‘The train is exquisite, and deserves  far more

than a rickety , dreamy ark without an ore’

‘She travels far , to places unknown

while I have stayed on this stream ,all alone

She leads a life of thrill and adventure

But beyond this lake , I fear to venture’

‘Oh she is the moon and I am just a child

who wishes to own it , in my imaginations wild’

And I shall worship her till eternity

My first  love , she shall always be’

Just then the train came slithering by…

 puffing out smoke , as if to say goodbye

The little ark , beheld her , lovelorn

as she chugged past , her whistle blown…

‘All love stories do not end 

on a happy note , my dear friend’

said the boat to the  trees

who were still swaying with the breeze

  1. Oh this is wonderful ..!! I mean a love story of a boat and train..!!!
    I liked the way you imagined; the way you brought the story.. A “he” and a “she” ..!!
    A lot of hidden meaning; hinting that love could be felt by something lifeless !! Breaking the common dogma !! 🙂

  2. whoa!! That is a cute interesting love story. Who would think a boat can fall in love with the train / who would think a simple chat can inspire such a love story. And it is interesting to note that the arc and smile are similar, and train is she and boat is he; she is free and he is tired down. So if you analyse and take it into another level, it is a powerful poem!
