Dromomania (Wayfarer Theme)

Post by Varda » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:47 pm

Inspiration. I am flung into the frenzied thoroughfares, exiled from thee, my heart, on a quest to bring life to the distant ends of this world.

I ride my bright craft down the thundering course where the river ever-narrows: tributary, brook, rill, and at last, a far shore where I deliver sustenance to the starving.

Expiration. How will I return to thee, my heart? Bereft of the breath of life, I let the current bear me back to you, longing for the peace I find only in your atria.

Home, but not for long. Every sixty seconds, a new journey.

Thanks for the kind words, folks. I felt the theme begged for something with an old-fashioned Anglo-Saxon Riddle flavor.

Although, when the Anglo-Saxons wrote anatomical riddles, theirs were always a bit more bawdy!
