The Trains I Know

The trains I know
seek solitude
in darkness,

they wear
wind and cold
with pride,

are never
lonely.
Sometimes they

sing too loud,
or mourn
harshly a

star’s fall, but
they never
deny their

purpose: to
draw between
and connect,

to witness and
serve, to bear
and endure

our unsought
burdens
to the end.

  1. I love riding trains and how they are moving bridges between places. It somehow seems more appropriate to me to travel in a train then in a car. How you experience the shortening of distance compared to the monotonous rush of a freeway seems right. Lovely poem!
