She passed by the waters in a hurry

        without looking at them

Driven by the fear of missing the train

That never arrived at the station in time…

Her being became the homeland of thirst suddenly
While she stood in the queue of passengers
Waiting to leave for the place she would not reach in due time…

Another traveler was waiting beyond a space
Equally drunk with eagerness and impatience
To see the woman who had passed by the waters 
Without stopping for a while…
