Botanic to Waterside

With a nod to Stephen Connolly’s “Translink Haiku”

This train she says is
for Derry Londonderry
big pause in between

I leave behind her
who looks at and takes pictures
of those she holds dear

Above the hollow’s
dark mouth a rainbow appears
too bright to take home

The train pulls into
where someone awaits me
the place with the pause

Mussenden Temple
like much else could not be seen
beyond the green cliff
