A YOU TUBE RUN WITH THE MERDDIN EMRYS (Ffestiniog Ry)

On “Timsvideochannel1”

On the driver’s side filming was done…

Filming seemed a breeze

On the MERDDIN EMRYS,

The camera looked firmly hung!

The last train to Porthmadog,

Which turned out quite a log jog…

Narrow gauge rails

Running through Wales,

Even a chasing white dog!

Walls sprung on one or both sides

Of the narrow strip where the train rides…

Many private crossing paths,

The more frequent  used have

A whistle post warning trains fly!

Sidings both old and well-used,

Giving riders good views…

Of the slate-hauling days

And narrow byways,

That the train softly chuffs through.

EVENING SOLITUDE

EVENING SOLITUDE

Took a break with James Taylor  for a guide,

Found him on You Tube, took his album for a ride…

Ate my supper in the quietness

Quiet time with James is probably the best.

No one came through–they all seemed to hide…

Thoughtful of them, letting me quietly ride.

ONE VERSION AFTER ANOTHER

ONE VERSION AFTER ANOTHER

Ya gotta love You Tube clips

Apt to take sudden slips….

Beneaar to Blondie,

Whitefield to Ghandi,

However they pile the chips.

Sometimes it’s like a full moon,

They’ll play three times the same tune…

All different hair styles

If she’s been here a while.Writing her music in runes.

Trains often are hijacked

To something with less impact…

I want trains not cars,

Rough railroad track not stars,

I wish they’d straighten their act!

FUR-BRAINED FELINES

FUR-BRAINED FELINES

You Tube compilations

Of cat concentrations…

Mirrors and jumps

And into bath dumps,

Expose tintinnabulations!

EXTREME MONSOONS

EXTREME MONSOONS

Was it coincidence,

Aligning of events…

Watched THE MONSOON RAILWAY*

During heavy rain today,

The rain outside was immense!

VICARIOUS RUNNING

VICARIOUS RUNNING

Visiting trains at You Tube,

I often find something new…

Finances precariously,

I run trains vicariously

The track ahead custom-viewed.

Amazing the trains I find

When the search is properly lined…

Miniature, real,

All kinds are revealed,

With sound so my interest’s entwined!
