Nicely said. Maybe it will lull you to sleep.
nice...wher i grew up at the train ran passed the house...used to listen for it every night as the clack clack would put me to sleep...
There's a river bridge about a mile from the house. Not a busy track, but every approach is announced by the long whistle. Love the sound.
"Rhythmic beat and layered harmony." That's what it's all about. Nicely expressed.
love these lines...rhythmic beat and layered harmonyblotting out all the painI can't sleep with any noise, it has got to be in absolute silence.happy sunday~
This poem has a lovely rhythm to it, H. I live in a valley where a train track runs, and I hear them in the night, so this resonates with me.
You reminded me of times I could hear a train at night, I have not heard a train for a very long time.
You make insomnia sound almost pleasant (or at least calming). But maybe that's because I don't have it!
An arresting image of a locomotive and a great poem.
I imagine that making a mournful sound in the night - British rail trains these days make a loud 'Barp-Beep' kind of noise, bad tempered and very loud! ♥

Great sounds to lull the pain away ~Thanks for reposting ~
I love the sound of trains too.
A hypnotic sound. Can certainly lull.
I soooooo love the sound of trains and the feelings that they evoke are are spread across such a huge expanse. Sometimes anything to fill in the silence is what is needed...drowning out those confounding voices. Loved it.
A train...I hear them occasionally in the distance where I live....love the sound.
Oh! I love trains, but haven't taken any overnight journeys. This poem is lovely and haunting too.
Trains take us away and bring us home - kind of give us hope, don't they?
