Train of Thought

I could hear the whistle,
drawn and drowning out the tweets,
the cars and rustling of leaves.

In winter you’re the loudest,
The snowflakes shift soundlessly,
sidewalks glisten under street lamps glow.
Still, you’re all that’s heard.

Tucking under heating blankets
and a pillow person’s arms,
I’m in my little nest.

I enjoy all that’s silent
and what’s crashing down into sound waves.

Train whistles hold more than their warnings.
They hold memories of carefree days.
They hold the tender joy of canceled school days
and sleeping in.

They hold long walks and bike rides,
stopping by Hefron’s to get a 50ยข Brisk tea.

Train whistles hold sentimental value
and the best of memories for me.

  1. The train tracks are close to where we live so I’ve gotten used to their sounds. The only thing I find annoying is when they blow their horns at night. They aren’t supposed to blow their horn at all in our area, but every so often, they will.

    1. That would be startling living closely to the tracks. I hear an echo of the train so it isn’t super loud. It’s so calming. I would definitely be scared if I lived close and the whistle blew . Aw ๐Ÿฅฐ
