    __Rachel, I step back to a more familiar time with this, my complementary echo to your nifty senryu. A metaphoric contrail… the lantern at the caboose. Thanks. _m

    the last train
    leaves a darkened depot
    its lantern

    I came across a website that is focused on discussing the value of traditional college degrees in the American educational system.

    Beautiful description. The contrail vaporizes, is gone, the starlight remains.

    Final departure? is the contrail a metaphor for human life?
