Journey back to the village proved to be too long, too late.

A Journey Too Late (Karena Series)

by Amber "V" Moonstone



The journey was long and tiring,
each evening Tumas fell into deep sleep,
I was to guard our safety and belongings.
The nights proved even longer than the days.

During the second week of our journey,
Tumas was strong enough to ride longer,
and I was able to sleep a bit more.
I call to my Eagle Spirit guide for strength.

Upon arriving at the outskirts of our village,
The morning sun was just about to rise,
I dismounted my horse to view my home,
Overwhelming feeling of doom fell upon me.

The village looked deserted,
no fires burning,
or horses in the village,
or warriors standing guard.

I looked at Tumas as he looked at me,
We knew, we were too late.
"Tumas, where have our people gone?"
"Karena we must face the worse possibility"

I ran as fast as I could toward my dwelling,
As I stood in the doorway praying and
Asking the Great Spirit to spare my children
My answers were unfounded.

There was not a sign of life anywhere,
The dwellings were stripped bare,
nothing was left behind.
This was a good sign for sure.

At least my people had time to flee,
and with the grace of the eagle,
and the mercy of the Great Spirit
they are all safe.

"Karena, we must go now, toward the east,
The eagle is flying low, he beckons us
we must follow him and get to safe ground,
I feel danger here, now, let's go, now"!

They run as fast as they can,
Mount their horses and gallop
toward the rising sun.
Karena looks back with tears in her eyes.

"Please Eagle Spirit guide, and Great Spirit,
bring us to safe ground,
lend us your wisdom and fortitude,
and allow us to have the opportunity
to share the rest of our lives with our beautiful children. They have waited so
very long for their father to return."


December 1609

Perfect, I do hope they find safety, (as you can see I am fast becoming addicted to this series).

Very good, and stirring. This is a very good book about Native Americans, I am sure of it. I can feel the simple and direct concern of the characters, and their spiritual reliance. Thank you for sharing this.

Ah, you were right! I did miss this one and I am so sorry! And a very good one indeed. Now to await the fate of the children so a family once more they will all be. What I do enjoy in these many chapters is the life you awaken, the stories that need to be told of the way it was.....

Be always safe,

The chapters of her life evoke such emotions to those of us whom have never thought about the other side of any nationalies given situation throughout history...
Your Novel will be a wonder gift to the literay world Amber. Your story episodes (though I lost my chapter place) your story episodes are the quality of a movie series, or a full blown movie. I would love to see it myself, a saga even...."Dances with wolves" was one of my all time favorite loves stories & "Karena Series" is just as beautiful!!

I enjoyed this very much. Being part Mohawk perhaps awoke a silent chord within me, as I saw myself building a hiding place in the woods in advance of some impending threat. Thank you so very much for this write. Vibrant word pictures!

Again we're swept along in the poetry of your journey,
knowing sadly (from the history of why we're here) that
the journey of hope is ever too late. -gene.
