I saw the train at middle distance,
It ran slow and was white,
It had many window and in each 
One I saw my brother. 
He didn´t see me although he looked
In my direction, but beyond me 
And the life he had lived before me.
I think it was a spring day I saw flowers
Twined together like a bouquet  
Near the tracks… the train disappeared 
Into a tunnel and when all was 
Quiet I heard a bird sing so sadly I thought 
It must have lost its nest.

    Dear Jan, I love the eeriness and vividness of this poem. Flowers twined together like a bouquet near the tracks is like a death and the aftermath of the bird left behind sadly looking for his nest is how I like to look at this. Your brother oblivious as the train takes him. I love it. Kathy
