where impressionism came from

I saw it begin on a train

did he think it up while he rolled on metal wheels
through springing summers
like I?

Rome bound from Paris
a sort of slow-mo-running-far-away-

sometimes I think I  like the going more than the getting there
[from a train I once slept on to Rome. Happy Earth Day]

One thought on “where impressionism came from

  1. How wonderful to see tht nature looks the same w its innate beauty, irrespective of any country or any far off land. The countryside of Rome is just like the Indian countryside…nature’s stretches are immense n endless like tht of eternity
