Train Haiku

sharing with
and thursday poets rally week 80

train grits its teeth,
taking a deep breath, wiggling
his way down the hill.
Percy and Thomas
the small engines on PBS,
always please toddlers.
from Beijing to Wuhan,
High speed train drags day and night,
keep my eyes open wide.


  1. Very good! Did not even think about Thomas!

  2. Welcome at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Carolina, your first try to write haiku is not bad. As Janice already said I too hadn't thought of Thomas the steam engine. Nicely written/composed trio of haiku.
    Hope to see you again here.
    By the way ... I am your host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. I am a Dutch haiku-poet and oncology nurse. I started writing haiku in the late eighties and Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is a dream which I could realize in October 2012.

  3. I like the way that high speed train is able to drag both day and night in its wake!

    Train for All Seasons

    one of our granddaughters was a huge thomas fan
    but that was long ago
    she's in high school now


  5. I feel like riding on a train for a long distant trip.

  6. I really like the train 'wiggling his way down the hill' - a lovely image :-)
