    __ Grand, and I thank you Claudette, you've caused this senryu; thinking of everyone's train, counting time, as that time clicks away… track to track. _m

    clock to clack
    when train wheels count as they roll
    time passes

    —CLAUDETTE RUSSELL

    Even when a train ride is to the next town or city, or perhaps the airport, we feel we leaving things behind, hopefully for the better. But intriguingly as each train ride leaves a past behind, they accumulate, as we always come back physically maybe with someone else's baggage.

    A gently thought(s)-provoking verse.

    I think after the forthcoming anthology of train poems comes out later this, we'll be inspired to write many more, and perhaps dealing with complex issues too in such a fine way.
