Sonatas XI-38 (Seeking)We came into view of civilization and saw the snacks and the shops
‘Commerce’ moves on when we are gone, it never stops
Past time to be with my wife and the little ones awhile
So quietly I bid my fellow Seekers adieu with a smile.
Khaetidawne and coffee and ice cream tempting me
I heard Rock Face’s distant laugh, “Ah, the call of the goodwife -
Grandchildren begging for tales of Sprites, Faeries, and Life!”
“Tomorrow you’ll come with the children,” a thought amidst the throng
“Your daughter, she’s lovely; her husband, he’s savvy and strong
Your Khaetidawne, who sees Faeries and Angels and hears all their songs” -
My soul yearns for the journey; let’s hope the wait is not long.
