Miscellaneous Moments Off The Beaten Track (Train Saga poem #6)

"Old Holler"~Plebeja~ a sweet place to rest with no ban lines

How does this traveling girl spend her free time when she puts her train away?
She stays open and loose to what comes at sunrise up until the end of the day.

a feast for the eyes

There is a lot to be seen and to explore a few meters from the rails
So this girl takes a day to experiment along a few  less traveled trails.

Off-track in Athetis at dawn

The trail is well worth the fact that you do have to find your own horse,
But the land and riders are protected and it’s a beautiful high mountain course.

Just a stone's throw from the smokey tracks

Dawn was breaking and the path led on to unknown beauty and mystery
The click-clack was traded in for hypnotic hoof beats, all of it part of her history.

a path full of beauty and mystery on Route 6 Athetis

The Great Wall opened its’ entrance, this elevated tunnel stretching for miles
Starting in Spini and ending at Horisme over 11 sims, a true equestrian trial!

spanning eleven sims ..the crossings were unpredictable

She took a long jog and did exercises in a bright colored building near the station,
Then sat on a bench in fields of flowers musing while  she practiced meditation.
Railway gym just a jog down the tracks

"...in silent meditation..."

Because she was open to talking to strangers, later on she almost got into a jam,
But her kidnapping became a musical, when she showed them she could be a ham.

"She almost got herself into a jam" (Menubar "Gadahfi" Memorial on patrol)

"she showed them she could be a ham" (with her high-kicking kidnapper MenuBar Memorial)

At lunch time she ran into Suze, with whom she was as close as two sisters can be
After dining on shrimp in Arches, they belly danced with a friend to Cheb Mami.

"as close as two sisters can be"

"Dining on shrimp in the Dining Car at Arches"

It was the birthday of sister Suze so they  celebrated with hip wiggling and joy
Camille beamed in from the future, her leather- killer moves were the real maccoy.

"Camille beamed in from the future"

Her free day was nearing its’ end, the sun was falling to the sea in a splash
Just when she thought of going back to the track, she walked off her sim in a crash.

"At the end of the day, she walked off her sim in a crash"

The End

  1. I want to note a few points of interest that were featured in this story. I won’t give them all as the whole idea of my Train Saga poems is to pique interest so that you might discover the SLRR on your own. But these are some interesting spots. The Dining car has the best food I have ever seen(or tasted) in SL. The last one is my Home sim and you are all invited to spend a romantic time there surrounded by some really beautiful art.
