cedars and pines

trainbw

each train whistle
calls to you, and I know
wherever you ride
you hear them
as far as the eye can see
reminding you
that you are not alone
on this earth
every rail’s rattle and hum
asking if you are ready
to take the next step outward
every bud on the trees
silent
but knowing this is life
and you can grab it
with both hands
