    Love the short forms, and always hard to make them work for me–distilling ideas down to their essence is a real skill, as you display here so adroitly. I really love reading poems that say so much with just the right number of words, like this one. Even the train in the picture is smiling. ;_)

    • Thank you for your warm response… I love the potential of this form… smiling trains .. 🙂

  8. Very effective, wonderful use of the form here. G.

  9. I have felt like this at times….the old light of my past reeling me in…You have said so much in such few words. The photograph works perfectly with your words.

    • Hi Susie… good to see you here. Many thanks for your kind words. Not surprisingly, this was written on a train 🙂
