The Phantom Stagecoach (A Haiku)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: The Butterfield Mail Trail used to run through my area, with its stagecoaches that ran between any number of stations to deliver mail and even people to various destinations. As such, a few stories related to them have popped up over the years, including that of a stagecoach once delayed by bandits who were less than merciful with its occupants. Now it’s said to make the trip every evening, only to disappear before it reaches the location where its next destination once stood.]
