Tracks Into Time
Settling into the sea,
the sun darkens the water;
shadows the rocks.
Around the bend
upon the ledge,
Ghost train appears,
chuffing clouds that blend to sky.
The train fades
And the whistle blows
an eerie silent chord,
In tribute to
a memory that never was.

The text below is informational in nature only, and
will reappear in many of my pieces, and can be ignored.
This is extra 'content' added at the end to fill space
for no better reason than that "Hub Pages" wants to
take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long
their compositions should be. I have numerous poems
that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.
