Mindful Writing 25 - Chalk Banks

Everyone is alone in the dark;
the 43 seconds in the tunnel between
 Gillingham to Chatham turn my lying watch-
face blank. Blinking away the glare from the
chalk faced banks; the light dims sharply.
I see the wire mesh holding the crumbling
chalk banks, slowly submerged by  
lush spring growth.
Ivy has buried the lone grey signal box,
slowly spreads towards the  
patchwork platforms.
