Branching Out

We Passed on a Train in Egypt
Steve Smith

We passed on a train
in Egypt
the same train
only in different directions
lost in the station
the wrong language
to understand
the depth of the journey
if we could only read the signs
the words on hearts
take time to read
and not destroy the book
dirty finger prints
tattered pages
only show that the book
has been loved
