*A Waltz Wave: Train Whistle


Train
whistle
fades
sliding
eastward down
the scale
as
it dis-
appears: all
I will know of
where it goes.
Falling
star,
streaking
from Leo:
all I
know
of its
fall.

    What a beautiful description. I love the juxtaposition of the sound of the train and the sight of the falling star. Really evocative. (Report) Reply
