Poetry – Poem 1

#writingwednesday #poetry

I write poetry in addition to fiction. Here is one of my poems, inspired by this photo taken on the train tracks behind Pullen Park in Raleigh, North Carolina:



Riding Rails

Tempted fate and lost
There is no end
Onslaught
Torrents of unchanging tides
No relief in sight
Will it carry me away?
When it comes at long last?
I wait.
Ticket in hand
Happy writing,
-Dori
