Like the loops of a chain keeping them together

Like the wires transmitting the news to your TV

Like the road that goes from A to B

Something keeps them together

Romans Rolling over Rural Scenes

Rocky paths for Stallions and Soldiers

Ripping through riverbanks

Miles of track traversing the country

Making its way from Manchester to Middlesex

Mighty juggernauts moving from north to south

Somethings keeps them together

Traversing over hill mountain and dale

To get to the office the shops or the coast

Taking the most direct route possible (sometimes via a tunnel)

Delays ?

Daily occurrence – as

Double time spent fixing holes or faults

Reactions to Roadworks

or leaves on the line ? – Revolutionary

Rolling up to your Destination by bus not train

Shortcut

#fowc #shortcut

Shortcut by Inky (created in painter from stock art)


Some might say it’s the easiest way

Hacking through the length of time doing something

Only, if you don’t follow the

Right directions from A to B you may find it

Taking longer – as it’s a path you’re not familiar

Cutting corners for an extra five minutes at the cafe bar ?

Unbelieveably risky, unless you’re following a plan

Taking the right direction , saves time in the long run.

Meticulous

#fowc #meticulous

Attention to detail

Is important when you are doing things

Scribbling down the wrong location

Can land you in a bucket of hot water

If you’re heading for Liverpool

But end up in Llandudno

Cabin

#fowc #cabin

14th March 2020

Carefully crafted, from trees that now surround it

a place to get away from the strains of modern life

blessed with a wonderful view of the lakes and streams

in sight of nearby provisions, a short ride away

not forgetting some wonderful animals

Choices

#Socs #Choices

Choices you make, can form you later on down the line

How you make them is down to you

Of course, there are many paths to travel, to where you want to go

It’s a decision you have to make…..

Cold or Hot, Coast – Countryside – or City

Even eating, can give you pause for thought

Should you have golden syrup or chocolate sauce on your pancakes ?

Wait

#fowc #wait

Time passes slowly

As you sit waiting for the train

To come rolling down the track

And into the station

Timetable isn’t friendly

It’s saying it’s on its way

So to distract you from the empty arrival

Your sat with your radio on play

And each tick that follows tock

Seems to be on a lock

As you wait for whoever forlorn

Listening out for the diesel trains horn

Tangent

#fowc #tangent

Taking road signs for granted

and following your navigation device – ignoring your own eyes is

notably, a recipe for disaster, as it

goes its own merry way and you

expect it to guide you to your

next destination – you think you’re headed to a sandy southern beach

the reality ? – you’re headed for rocky cliffs and pea shingle

Map

#map #fowc

many a sailor or perhaps

a buccaneer has used one of these in

pursuit of treasure

many you will find,

as a guide for potential explorers

putting their feet across peak district peat bogs

most are a guide for weary travellers

ambling across the uk road network

perhaps they could have taken the train ?

Delay

#fowc #Delay

What is the Rush? Train Stopped

As it sits on Tracks, Locked

I am sat in the station cafeteria

Taking in a tea and cake

In expectation that the

Next locomotive is

Going where I want to go
