Glenrothes with Thornton

I wrote this poem after a creative writing class in a Gallery very near Waverley station. It evoked so much in a week that the Flying Scotsman took us back in time and the new Trainspotting filming has started across the city. Hope you like it. And thanks to Angela for the photo that's started it all off.....choo choo

Glenrothes with Thornton

Trainspotted Edinburgh
transported to
another time
and peace
broken by memories
Glenrothes with Thornton
a flying Scottish
of fields
rapeseed blazes
red rusted bridges
Excited journeys
Promises of joyful
train trips
life stretching ahead
