Railroad-Trains related haiku, tanka and senryu... as I find them!

night train-
part of myself reflected
in thought
 
 
   - tc
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
railroad crossing
an old man
waves at the train
 
 
    - tc
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
walking the tracks
my thoughts
go nowhere
 
 
  - tc
 
 
 
 
 
 
the train picks up speed,
in a paper coffee cup
concentric waves
 
 
   - John Stevenson
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
the coal train
slow along
summer foothills
 
 
 - Anita Virgil
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
midnight train
the voice of one old-timer
going on and on
 
 
  - John Stevenson
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
       bending back
along the railroad track
                       tiger lilies
 
 
  - Alan Pizzarelli
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
train's aisle
at the end of a line of children
the adult
 
 
  - John Stevenson
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A night train passes:
pictures of the dead are trembling
on the mantlepiece
 
 
 - Eric Amann
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
night train
the fireworks
you missed
 
 
- John Stevenson
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
snow falls from trees
      rumble
of passing boxcars
 
 
 - Alan Pizzarelli
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
train station
a redcap carries
their camping gear
 
 
- John Stevenson
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
on the train
my usual thoughts
 about derailment
 
 
 - John Stevenson
