  1. Very cool, covering two of my favourite topics, trains, and snow!

    Gorgeous imagery, and wonderful coupling of the sound of a train and the colour of dusk before a night of snow. Magical!

    I also can’t wait for the train anthology to come out by Jacquie Pearce whom I’m hopefully seeing in person next month. 🙂

    a ripple through fields
    whistling down the wind
    the train on its way

    And can’t resist:

    a flink of cows
    the blue before a night
    of falling snow

  2. My side of the Pond. We’ve had some wonderful haiku poets coming over from that side recently, and lots more to come before the year is over. 🙂



Thank you!
