seize the poem prompt: silence
My Response to the Prompt:
middle of night call
promptly at 2 AM
no train whistles at crossing
silence where comforting sound
once rode the rails
The trains no longer run on this track
except for the Downeast Scenic Railroad
a fully restored operating railroad that runs
tourists excursions on this very track two
blocks from my home… and yes.. I can hear
the whistle blowing those days !

children of all ages can have with the train.
