Haiku – Distant Rattle

Loud train horn blowing

Across the solid steel tracks

Wheels rolling forward


There is just something about a train whistle. It reminds me of my childhood and staying the night at my grandparent’s house. She lived over in the coal area of the Appalachian Mountains and those coal trains used to rattle by a lot back then. Good memories. So, what do you think when you hear a train whistle?
