#Poetrychallenge – The tracks

Tracks heading away

Endless opportunities

At their distant end

But lush green surrounds lend hope

To my current position

  1. Robbie, this looks like the abandoned railroad track on Bermuda…it runs the length of the entire island and was used to transport food and supplies from America to Europe during the Second World War…it is now a gorgeous walking path through the center of the island…I walked it!

    1. You have done such great things, John. I have not been there but would also be fascinated by an abandoned and historical railway track. I really hope this pandemic ends soon and we can start travelling again. I missed out on Poland this year and our trip to the UK. I am desperate to see the medieval kitchen at Glastonbury Abbey.

      1. Yes, we are also so eager to travel again, and are planning our Santorini trip again, with a trip to French vineyards as well…let’s hope the world can get its act together to solve this health crisis…

  2. I spent a lot of time as a kid walking on the rails below our home. I loved thinking about where the train could take me and also loved the spots near it. You captured that double love well in a few words.
