Day 3 Happiness Poetry, Train: A Love Story

Train: A Love Story

I was born next to a railroad track

and have lived next to one my entire life,

without that Janis Joplin/Sam Cook twist cone

smooth sailing sound,

the rumbling earth,

I think I would shrivel up and die,

it is in my blood.


About Frances Wiedenhoeft

After a lifetime in nursing, anesthesia and the Army I now write, blog, attend school for journalism and massage, and watch my 3 grandchildren. I am a veteran of Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan and try to serve other vets such as myself, and to work for peace.
