I'm in love with this perfect train song...I love trains, I love the mournful echoes of their distant music ...

Once more without ugly typo:
In fog or in darkness we are more sensitive for noise and for sounds. Often a haiku treats this. So did you. Well done.

A lovely haiku. Trains are great places to write haiku, what with the scenery changing constantly...

I like the poem Magyar, there is something about trains, fog and rhythm ...

Train wheels
nightly distant rhythm
lost in the fog

your words together with Andrew's music Mozart - Pachabel Cannon made me do this little remix (dont tell him he might want some of the credit) I love that music it can wonders to your mind when writing.

(second try much better) :)

A good haiku!

And I've just read Rudi's comment and I'm Rudi's echo: "...in darkness we are more sensitive...for sounds...". We all know this, you've found the right haiku-words.

Best wishes,
Angelika
