This platform is for Infinity

spake the railway worker

his words lost on the wind

as he passed.

I was looking in the wrong direction

but I knew what he meant.


If Infinity is a slow process

that would account for the gap

that I was minded of

between me and where I thought I was going.


and was it worth waiting for?

I was quite surprised that this picked up the responses. It was dashed off, so I'm delighted.

Hazel, a good point, I feel that is certainly an essential ingredient.
I'm projecting it back ...! Thanks.

Hi Peter. I fear your comment has only added to the mystery of what I was getting at which of course was the whole point. Interestingly infinity is the point of convergence of lines in to the distance, such as happens on a railway. Is that ok?

Anita, we meet at the same moment contained in the experience ! Thanks.

Rachel, that adds another layer on a physical level. Maths was my weakest subject, but it would be nice to understand more . I'm grateful for your extra input.

Phil. Yes, there is no going back unless for a sense of balance, not always wise. Thanks.

Martin, you have picked up on my humour here, it was a dig as explained in the audio. Cheers.

Thanks David. Mind the gap is such an iconic phrase now, I definitely had it in for that ! As for the pseudo science , I'm try anything.

Thanks Stu. If you can't work it out it should never be unwrapped!
Philosophy gets in everywhere these days.

Hi Tommy, who am I to argue; one day the penny will drop in the universal and perceived mind, until then , ill keep on waiting as promised. x

Thanks for the likes: Jon, Frances, Keith, Des, Anya, Heart of Lead, Vautaw and Jason, all very welcome.

There is no 'gap'; all existence is constant and changing constantly. Energy may subside but it does not dissapear. Particle physics is a hilarious fraud. Have a nice day.
Hi Ray ?

Another mind blowing poem on a number of levels Ray, but it does make me feel that you have been waiting on the platform for too long waiting for the train.
Nice one mate

Oh Master of bons mots; you have done it again. Please enlighten your poetry pupils as to where the Infinity bus stop is and the nature of the eternal terminal.

I feel a great weariness - or am I projecting?
