Poetry Junction

I am at the station
but there won't be a train coming.
Not yet.

I am looking into the distance
searching for any movement
in any direction
wishing for a train
wanting the journey
needing a destination.

I remember the blur of motion
the thrum of sound
the rush of wind
the satisfying halt.

Even before the train comes
you can imagine getting in
finding a seat
settling down
wondering where you've been
and where you're going to.

You can anticipate
the cosy carriage
where you exhale
and trust the engine
to take you somewhere.

Thank you also Nigel for commenting, I'm sure we can share the same train of thought many times, especially through poetry.

This is one of those poems in which the writer successfully takes the reader into the scenario described. I well remember the days of steam, carriages with corridors and compartments, large waiting rooms with open fires, whistles being blown and the great gusts of steam as trains arrived and departed. Train journeys have no comparison to other forms of travel. A poem well written.
Thank you for this
