Tanka – The Train Tracks

Sprinting off the tracks

That spine tingling excitement

Makes you feel alive

Leaping at the last second

The metal grazes your heal


I will point out, this picture was taken minutes before the inspiration for this poem arose. It happened when we realized, by the yank of a whistle, we were seconds away from road kill. Not a bad way to kick off finals week.
