Sitting on the platform
Ticking in the distance
As the chariot draws ever nearer
Steam billowing
As angry engines rumble

I feel the sunlight
It begins to warm my skin
The beautiful innocence
Of a dawning day
As the dragon draws in
Tracks tremble

The biting air
By the dragon
As engines calm
To a purr
It’s now welcoming
Beaconing me
To continue my journey

Dragon-chariot waits
As weary travellers
A hiss
We begin again
It’s gentle ticking
And rocking
Tell me we’re on the move

Realisation dawns
As my chariot
Flies closer
To its destination
Acutely aware
My destination
I know
Is far beyond this place
