Favorite Quote:
Life is like the piano; what you get out of it depends on how you play it.
It's the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have time~Tallulah Bankhead.
"Everyone knows that there's no such thing as a cat owner."

In the center of chilling winter
it’s sprinting, sprinting, sprinting
across the rusty, golden tracks.

The canyon’s depths,
consuming the whistling echo,
which cuts through the frosty air.

It seems five light years away,
following its sounds path,
disappearing into the safety of the peaks.

Escaping, escaping, escaping,
away from all views of nature.
Soon, the only things left are,

The silent screams of the train’s wheels,
saying ‘goodbye’.

This is a poem that I wrote in response to a daily prompt. This is one of the very few poems that I have written, so if you could comment, you are my hero!
