Anatolia, Minaret, Oasis, Old Wagon Lit, Orient Express, Station, Train, Travel
The ancient roundness of Anatolia
observed only in the dun-colored monochrome
of late August and September
leaves behind in memory
a misleading monotony.
But threaded like beads of colorful montages
are the dazzling appearances of minaret-topped villages.
Our train pauses for the momentary recognition
then moves on to the next station,
the next oasis.
