Wednesday’s Wondrous Writings: “Choo”

Welcome to the first WWW of February, which is going to be a month of me doing free verse poetry. This poem was inspired by riding a train, which I did with a friend several days ago. Unfortunately our trip was then cancelled, but I still enjoyed the short time we spent on the train!


Time is ticking,

moving slow

with the train

not above our feet,

but below.

I am not tired

neither is she

yet I’m lulled to sleep

by this sweet melody:

chug chug chug

choo choo

chug chug



This was such a fun one to write! I am so glad to be back to free verse after trying some more constricted forms of poetry, because it feels much more natural to me! Do you prefer writing in free verse or do you like structured forms?
