Tracks

Railroad tracks through town

Passes on for miles untold

Going, going–gone…

  9. There is something so nostaligic about this. We have a train track about a mile from us (in Reno) by the Truckee river. I love to hear their calls which do show up in my poetry from time to time. Nice one, Gayle.

    • Thank you, Victoria. As a child I would hear the distant train calls in the night–somehow they were comforting to me.

      I’m happy to hear you enjoy those train calls too.

  10. I completely agree with Mike. I don’t usually read all the comments before I comment but this one popped out at me. No need for friends to say good-bye we just need to check in on each other from time to time. Lovely parting haiku

  11. I love the sound of trains … we live in a very small community and the train is one block away …the sound seems “comforting”, especially at night. My “puppies” try to sing hello and good bye – as it passes by! I am grateful the challenge introduced me to your work! Thank you, becca

    • Becca, it was a pleasure meeting and enjoying this haiku journey together. Thank you too!

      I can just see your “puppies” howling along with the trains whistle. So cute…

    • I loved to watch the trains go by when I was a child. I was fascinated by them–and always loved to see the red caboose at the end!

      Thank you.

  14. Back in the day before the tracks, railroads came, some people didn’t want them.

    Passes on with miles untold with passengers carrying their stories away from or to some other place.

    • I guess like anything else–some people must have feared the railroads and how it may change their lives…?

      Everyone has a story–so true.

  15. Galyle, this is delightful! 🙂

    I can hear the train from my place. The sound is actually rather comforting, isn’t it.

    And here it is Mar.!, and the haiku challenge is fading in the distance as with the train. How appropriate is that! Hugs!

    • That sound is comforting–I especially loved it as a child at nights in bed.

      It was a fun month of Feb haiku. I met some new nice people along the way too!

      Thanks, Jamie. 🙂
