Mighty Monster

The engine, though mighty, moans and groans as he drags his burden behind him over drifting sands and windy plains.  He glides smoothly past curious cattle and invisible wildlife.  He creeps over soggy rice fields and sunken catfish farms, all the time crying his sorrows through every town and village along the way.

Some hear and commiserate with the lonely wail, but most take his weekly sojourn for granted and barely notice his rumbling passage.

Yet those he carries bask in pleasure at his movements and stare in fascination as they live their moving dreams.
