the tunnel

the tunnel

A Poem by Hester Grey

Like two trains passing 
each other in a tunnel 
the windows lighted from within 
illuminated faces flashing by
the rattling lasts but a short minute 
the shaking of the cars less than a second 
and you are left alone 
going fast 
into the endless dark

Hester Grey,

I enjoyed this write, it was short and quick, yet had so many great points to be appreciated. Great descriptive words and sentences, maybe one or two too many conjunctions, but hey, great write.

The two trains - symbolic of people in their daily activities - indeed this is how our lives sadly exist.

Creative and energetic...

Great job,


This should be entered into Poetic Infusion Society's contest, Enlightenment (that is if you have not yet entered).

Ever wander the subways above ground... the sidewalks where each person is so enwrapped they each are a subway car going elsewhere than anyone else?
