Transport of Delight

Is it a vehicle, this transport of delight,
a flight if fancy, of delivery,
of running after of pursuing,
of hoping for, or of ruing?

Is it car crash philosophy,
ambulance chasing claims
and counter claims, empty trains
and trains of thought, against the buffers?

Are your best ntentions, my own,
do we share a destination
and fly threre direct or connect,
so our connections correlate?

All transports of delight terminate,
all journeys go astray,
even those that reach their terminus;
it is never where we want to reach,
or thought we might arrive.

wow! I liked that. The way it makes me feel is like we are on a roller coaster ride of life meeting, greeting, and getting involved and then going on our merrily way
to meet someone new or experiencing another instant of life to see where it carries us.

If you like Marc go look up some of the other poetry discussions and I have submitted quite a few poems in the last 5 months. Some are about war and how it affects people, one is about a kiss on the forehead I wrote when everyone was kissing my Aunt as she lay dying and its actually very positive poem , but most of them are philosophical and answer questions in my mind. I also wrote one about being unemployed too. I can post them here if you like.
