Haiku: Building the railway

img_6262

Inspired by tales of long-ago railway workers while on the West Coast Wilderness Railway. It rained so much in the rainforest, they had trouble keeping fires alight to warm them at night. They thought it was a terrible, harsh place.

Taming wilderness.
For workers of old, hope was
only fire that burned.
