A Very Impatient Train Commuter …


 A Rainy Day at the Dover Train Station

How heavy fell the rain that day and there were just a few travellers at the Dover station waiting for the next train to other promising destinations… We were all  patiently waiting on the platform,except for a very impatient train commuter who was restlessly going up and down and looking at the station clock persistently …

so restive ...

looking at everybody and everything

felt so sorry he was alone and so anxious ...

felt so sorry he was alone and so anxious …

When it came closer to me I didn’t hesitate to ask him where he was going to and if he had bought a ticket  … He said he had a ticket already and that he was going  down to the beach near the White Cliffs to meet the rest of the seagull family and go fishing …

it was overcast and all looked grey

I felt so happy after chatting with him,but I started making connections and thinking of  my Orpheus,the little Bard …  who was confined in the ” gold” cage … Very unfair I thought,all birds should be free and fly high,but what about Pandora,our sweet cat,who flirts with him,amused by his sweet notes   ♬♬(◦’⌣’◦)♬♬ ♬♬(◦’⌣’◦)♬♬  Or because …. ?  No,I thought,he is confined but safe … But,was he happy ? He  must be,otherwise he wouldn’t sing …

Orpheus,our first-class Troubadour

Plato is a great Troubadour

Orpheus is a great Troubadour

But,what about Pandora ? Does she really like him or she will …  if  I set Orpheus  free … ?

Pandora ... I don't trust you ...

Pandora … I don’t trust you …

Do you really like his  notes  ♬♬(◦’⌣’◦)♬♬  Or  …. ?

if he was not happy he wouldn't ♬♬(◦'⌣'◦)♬♬

if he was not happy he wouldn’t ♬♬(◦’⌣’◦)♬♬

OM !  I’ll Miss the Train ……  I’ll Miss the Train … I Have to Leave All My Thoughts Behind and Get On …

It was A Rainy Day in Dover,but I was Happy I had met the Impatient Train Commuter,the great Fisher-Seagull …

  8. This is such a wonderful picture/word musing story. There are sea gulls at my lake high in the mountains…..and even in the snow. I can’t understand why they came when they could be warmer by the sea.

    • Did my humble post touch a remarkable painter like you,Gretchen ? Then,I must be proud of it … 🙂 .Much appreciated,my friend 🙂
      I know where you live,it’s high in the mountains,but I am not surprised you get seagull visits.We also have them visiting Mount.Penteli where I live,but it happens only spring time,as if looking for something they miss near the sea.I’m sure there is a good reason behind it.Nature never stops surprising us …
