3 February 2018 – Ghost Train

Ghost Train

Sunday, arrive late at the station,

grass is growing, no-one is here –

warped rails blistered with orange,

in the eaves pigeons poop

cooing stridently

strutting to flaunt

their stuff to

willing

hens

 

High

above

a sky-lark

soars, warbling its

rainbow melody

peace descends – heat rises

from tar-drenched timber sleepers

I wait in vain to hear a toot

or whistle or a chug of white steam

 

(A Nonet)
