Rome, on the train heading to Naples, early morning

The sun rises salmon pink over the humps of hills; towns and villages run past; stations lay supine and passive, unpopulated in the early morning shadows. Slipping darkly through long black tunnels. Olive trees cascade in a hazy dust of silver green, jostling for air in the dusty breath of morning. Fields of maize huddle together in the 8 o’clock sunrise, blankets of green eared wizardry, olive trees and vines.
