Acoustics of a Train

English: Taiwan High Speed Rail trial run in June 24th, 2006

A train's natural path, the rhythm of its journey, the excellency of its life, and the ferocity of its essence, expressing the many variations of living.

Ever noticed the acoustics of a train?

Like the way it moves,rumbling about shaking like a dragon fly in the storm's rain.

Each wheel 's teeth grinding the rails, devouring the track

Causes a sail blowing full bloom in the wind.

The train whistling as it moves forward and then back

Reaching, bellowing, quivering like a spoiled child in hunger pains

Inching down the tracks, cursing inflammation and insanity, pretending to be sane.

Couldn't ever wonder what a motor car would say if it could speak gin.


That If it had vocal cords, a voice box and a brain

Rumbling whistles, blowing, saying here we come! Crashing through the tunnel at Willow's creek.

Admirably singing loud and urgent songs, yelling at the top of its lungs mane.

Intentionally Ever noticed the acoustics of a train?

Never? Then you missed out on the breath of life, and the heavenly train.

Seriously!


Living the way it moves, It's mumblings, its roaring, rumbling about and shaking like a dragon fly in the storm, caught in the rain.

Opening Its teeth consuming the rails, and devouring the tracks

Coordinating the sail blowing full bloom in the winter's wind,

Operational train whistling as it moves forward and again back.

Moving, screeching, bellowing, quivering like a spoiled child in hunger pains.

Oiling down the tracks, cursing with inflammation and insanity, pretending to be sane.

Testing brake, ever wondered what a motor car would say if it could speak.

If it had vocal cords, a voice box and a mainframe.

Velocity sounds blowing, here we come! through the tunnel at Station's peak.

Every car sung loud and urgent passing, yelling at the top of its lung's mane.


Long, loud and urgent, yelling at the top of its tongue's crane.

Island people! Never really noticed the acoustics of a train.

Rail path steep, tunnel restricted, conductor smoking crack.

Roads! Never really noticed the acoustics of a train track.

Woah what a great Acrostic Credo - not that I'm into trains - but very well done - the rhythm was like it chugging down the tracks. Well done!

Yes it is certainly hair pulling, but I love poetry, so I will continue to practice it.
