Train of Thoughts


Train of Thoughts by Veronica Thornton is a compilation of original poetry, essays, and short stories. The essays and poetry read in a stream of consciousness format, the former really having a conversational feel and the latter employing the use of syllabic beats and rhyme schemes to punctuate otherwise freeform poems into true cohesiveness.

About the Author

Author Name : Veronica D Thornton

      am the author of "Universal Colloquies Inside of Me" and just currently released "Train of Thoughts", I have had the honor of being a contributing writer to over 15 anthologies, journals and literary collaborations, owner of Vee's Consulting a creative business consulting agency that specializes in literary content creation, creative writing and creative business consultant and one of the co-founders of The Creative Healing Foundation a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating programs and events that promote healing through the arts providing safe spaces to openly speak about emotional and mental wellness. Even when I'm down I look up. That's something I learned to do at an early age. It seems many of us spend a large portion of our lives trying to comprehend who we are and where we fit in this world while we sometimes allow others to make ourselves question whether we even belong in it. As the world just recently become this beacon of acceptance of people being different and developing an anti-bullying culture would sometimes wonder how my life would be different had I not been traumatized by people in a world that puts such a high value on aesthetics especially when you have no control over some things. Yet had it not been for my sometimes-debilitating skin issues I don't think I would have the same level of introspection, empathy, or patience. Yet it is those same skin issues that although made me different also made me more aware that things are not always what they appear to be on the surface and there is always more to the story. The question then becomes do you really want to know the story or are you just looking to judge it based on your own perceptions? I am an author and freelance writer that loves the art of storytelling. Whether poetry, research based, editorial, ghostwriting, articles or any other form of writing. If it involves weaving words together to convey a message I'm here for it. Words are important and the stories we tell become a part of history.

Latest Poem

Countless things put together make us who we are

Perhaps what we’ve learned or things seen near and far

True or false learned from numerous varied sources

Or perhaps something seen travelling many courses


It has been my great pleasure to see some special lands

Majestic mountain vistas, Alberta’s haunting badlands

The vastness of the prairie with horizon never reached

The power of the ocean from a shell strewn beach


I’ve crossed giant rivers, walked beside the babbling brook

Seen the best and worst of nature seldom pictured in a book

The crags of mountain passes, topped by winter’s sparkling load

Miles and miles of wheat the sun and rain has turned to gold.


Acres and acres of deep green peas, topped by the pink of bloom.

Offset in midst of summer with bright yellow canola bloom

A patch-work quilt from nature and the work of many hands

Laid out in squares and diamonds across a great productive land.


The history of Bedford Basin, Louisbourg, Queenston Heights

Twenty four hours of daylight, mysterious northern lights

Beaver pelts to England to make all kinds of hats

And each spring the best of sugar boiled from Maple sap.


A strong beautiful stallion, head high, nostrils flared,

Eyes full of fire and danger as he guards his heard of mares

Several hundred cattle grazing the luscious grass

Or bedded in the shade to let the hot day pass.


Hundreds of pictures we catalogue as we go passing by

Let the good ones erase the bad, or at least let them try

Some of it we saw and some of it we learned.

Some good and some bad but somehow always earned.


There’s always strife and woe, you don’t need to hunt it up

Forget it, let it lay. You know there’s the rub

You may hate this or that but it’s all part of the way

You became who you are; what you are today.
