For a long time I have been away.
I collected coins and medals from my stay.

One moment, I’d been on the path to the tower.
Then I found myself wasting my hours.

How precious my lessons were along the way!
Still, I realize I have gone astray.

Now I’m in the middle of a storm.
My thoughts are scattered, and I’m worn.

Let me rest here for a little while.
I’ll gather the essentials with a smile.

I’ll be more patient than ever before.
When rested, I’ll walk on once more.

I thought the Muses had abandoned me. Turned out they had not. So here I am. More poetry to come. 🙂
