The Return – A Travel Haiku

Hi everyone! Guess who’s back?! It’s been nearly a week since I’ve returned from my second grand journey to Japan. What a trip it has been, full of amazing sights, exciting discoveries and all-around epic experiences! Oh, I’m looking forward to sharing some of the highlights with all of you, which I definitely intend to do this time! ^_^;

Coming back home, seeing my family again, being able to share my stories, I definitely wouldn’t call it a bad thing. Still, just like four years ago, the end to the great adventure seemed all too sudden, and even now, my attempts to get back into the usual flow are sluggish as I can’t shake the feeling of how much I miss that place…

If I had the chance to stay a few weeks longer, I’d take it in a heartbeat! All good things must come to an end, of course, but that doesn’t necessarily make it easy. Therefore, something a little different today. Next week should see the return of The Artist’s Tale, but today I’d like to share a haiku in honour of another journey’s end. Please enjoy.


The Return
The sun sets once more
Days go by as in a blur
Here comes the longing

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
