A poem to read aloud to a child 🙂  Kudos to my son who is a train engineer!  (Linking to dVerse Poetics  prompt “Wheels of Steel” with Bjorn)


jumping on

going, gone


faster, faster


pacing a train

racing in vain


faster, faster


wheels turning

diesel burning


faster, faster


graffitied cars

glowing stars


faster, faster


vision at night

one-eyed light


faster, faster


hugging its track

never look back


faster, faster, clickety-clack!
