The Whistle of a train – A part of life happening!

distant train


Sometimes, very early in the morning as life begins to stir,
I hear a train whistle blow in the far off distance,
a most melancholy sound; nonetheless, when I hear it
I feel all is well in the world and so my day begins anew.
… And just the thought, the knowing,
that somewhere,
others are going about their daily business
makes me feel not alone,
a part of the living of life happening all around me.
