Rail Road

Where the rail

Meets the road

And the gravel

Kisses tracks,

Linger not

At the cross-point.

For the trains

Will chug on

And engines run

Because they can.

Down the mountain

She drives

As fields await wheat

To arrive.

Down the mountain

She strives

Arrow straight

To a new life.

Shuttered Way

Old way down stony hill

Many shutters hold still.

Do aged walls

Yet recall

What in past time rang through:

“Gardez l’eau, Gardez l’eau…”?

 

 

For Cee’s Which Way Challenge

 

Let the Road

Let the road

Take you home

road1

 

Let the path

Call your spirit

road3

Let the sky

Draw your eye

road2

To the line

To the fairies

road5

Do not fear

The dark road

road4

Do not fret

Paths so endless

road7

 

There are stairs

Up to heaven

There are rails

Bound for home

road8

 

Let the road

Find direction

And a handhold —

Lean on

 

road9

 

As the road

Marks your steps

road10

 

Leads the way

Takes you home.
