The exercise:

This late night edition of Two Haiku Tuesday is brought to you by: trains.


The views are brilliant
But the train's swaying motion
Leads me to sweet dreams

*     *     *

The train is sold out?
Like that's going to stop me -
I'll just ride up top.

Heh, you must have ridden some Indian trains, given your second haiku there! I totally agree with the first one though, an inter-city train is a really peaceful way to travel (in the UK, they're the only ones with decent gaps between stops. Inside the cities, you barely get five minutes before a new stop appears, sometimes only two.)


I can listen to
Far-away trains passing by
All night long with you.


No volcanic ash
Shall stay the proud iron steed
It shall cross the world.

Toys, full size, live steam
My family loves all trains.
Do I love them, too?

Greg - I actually had the movie The Darjeeling Limited in mind when I wrote that one :)

I like both of yours, but the romantic in me says the first one is better.

Morganna - I've always wanted a toy train :)
