The Enlightened Wanderer
Seeking did I wander, to find my heart's desire,
Scanning the horizon, ever drenched with haze,
Until I spotted a cottage, concealed in the mire,
There sat a scrawny old Ruki, eyes fully ablaze!
I asked the Ruki for wisdom, and yet, he laughs!
"You ask for knowledge you can't comprehend!
It can't be acquired from tomes or from books,
Nor can my words satisfy your searching end.
"You see; knowledge comes from experience,
By navigating through the land, far and wide!
If I tell you all that I might know, for instance,
You won't understand, even if you really tried!"
And so I gave pause, eyes alight with silly awe,
Leaving him to his minding, whatever it may be.
And then I realised, as if hit by a springing thaw,
I was more enlightened by his words
Than he thought that I might be.
The Ghost Draik
A foggy dark forgotten wood
Foreboding claw-like gloom
Choking every sign of life
From a lonely unmarked tomb
Where the lifeless ones await
For an unset eternal date
Dull blue scales, almost grey
Bathed in the softest glow
Tattered wings and white scars
Upon the brow is written sorrow
She waits upon her tombstone
Wretched, sad, and very alone
Coloured like the dying rose
Her eyes are bottomless, deep red
Filled with the years she had lived
And the centuries she was dead
Witnessing all that has passed
Remaining faithfully steadfast
Not many stumble upon her glade
Past the bent flowers along her path
To the reason why, nobody knows
Perhaps they fear her spirit's wrath
But for whatever, she stills exists
Her figure is discernible in the mist
A breeze blows past the windows
Chimes tinkle --
An Aisha sleeps.
The stars glow in the sky
Clouds move gently,
Across the sky.
Numbers are glowing in dreams
Add and subtract,
Solve them quickly!
An alarm clock is ticking
Toward the end --
Darigan! We shall succeed,
A land that has the greatest king.
Over all we shall surpass,
No matter what the aftermath!
We came to claim that which was ours,
Yet now we stay our mighty powers.
Even if Skarl did offend,
We have a truce which sees no end.
Our colours evil appear,
Some see our hides and run in fear.
But we know that we're not all vile,
Few have the need to reconcile.
Flying high is our abode,
The Citadel, our lofty home.
Who but the faeries also claim
A cloudy playground without rain?
None of us would turn away,
And very few would ever stray;
Our violet flag waves high and true.
And now we ask: what say you?
What's Behind the Mist?
What's behind the mist you've created,
Tarla would you tell us?
How long we all have sat and waited,
The mystery has started a fuss.
A lot of folk are all upset,
Because they can not find you.
There are 16 pieces we must get,
Before this Mystery Tour is through.
I am not sure if I will clear
All of the purple mist in time.
The end of your Tour is drawing near,
Your sneakiness should be a crime.
You don't stay put in one place
For very long at all, you see.
We all want to see your face,
But tell me just where you'll be?
I've looked and looked all around,
Every location I can think.
It seems that you can't be found,
You're gone long before I can blink.
Many have been speculating
What's behind the mist all around.
Please tell me, for I'm sick of waiting,
Tell me where you can be found.
Some say that you hold the key
To a place that cannot be accessed.
An Island by the name of Lutari,
If that's the case, then we are blessed.
Another theory some have thought
Is that an underground shop that you own,
A place where things can be bought;
Please, Tarla, throw us a bone!
At least try to give us a little clue,
You don't have to tell us all.
The rumours started small, but then they grew,
Some of them are now quite tall.
I want to get into more detail
About all the talk your Tour has created.
I just hope that I don't fail,
And the prize will make me glad I waited.
But you have to know that curiosity
Has gotten the best of us.
When this is all over, for the life of me,
What will happen to the rest of us?
The ones that couldn't get the mist clear,
What will happen to them, I ask?
Their efforts will be in vain, I fear,
Because they couldn't complete the task.
I will end this with one last request:
Please give something special to everyone.
Know they all did their very best,
And now my is take on the Tour is done.
