{ Life Lurches }

antoine-beauvillain-760After traveling on level lands

(Blessedly monotonous)

Like a train,

Life lurches.

Rushing on

Dangerous and fast

Taking my breath away

Pressing through unknown tunnels

And hairpin turns

Until the Conductor

Guides and glides into familiar flatness

I smile, sigh and wait

For the next surprise.
