A harsh winter is approaching as The Train of Universal Feelings rolls along the banks of the Silver River on its journey back home. Aboard the train, a tale of love, devotion, and grand reparation is unfolding while many passengers board and depart in the most precarious places. Suddenly, the conductors, Devon and Angelina, become separated when the train is diverted and then vanishes from sight. Prostrate on an old cobblestone bridge, Angelina is approached by a traveler, of no earthly means, informing her that there is to be a trial. There will be a kill in the spirit world. Confounded by this revelation and the distortions of her own internal battle, of a child that could not be conceived, Angelina looms on the edge of divorce and suicide. The traveler reveals that she was purposely chosen to defend the human spirit because of the superior skill and divine intellect of Woman. Forced upon a stage of heroes, warriors, social engineers, and guardians of the past, Angelina comes face to face with Morality, Reason, Fear, and Death. What will winter bring? Will it resonate with sorrow? Will she ever be reunited with Devon? Is anything she is experiencing real? Maybe it is all just a dream. Award-winning poet JOSEPH F.
