a train of TANKAS
image: Convict Lake - Eastern Sierras - rlc

Although I clamber
To find rare gems still hidden
I remain centered
Recalling my ancestors
And the ways that they proffered

Sapience and love
Searching the strata of life
With no assuring
Knowing that much would be lost
They still pressed into the void

Beyond obstacles
Enduring deprivation
And much frustration
They persevered in all faith
Towards the goal they saw beyond

Knowing life and death
Were two sides of the same coin
They held destiny
As a personal calling
Without any wavering

Traversing mountains
And all dark convolutions
~Rotating swiftly~
These adventurers set forth
To discover light and truth

But still the storms raged
And their dreams were all tested
Beyond what they knew
They bounded forward in faith
All seeking to understand

Working in tandem
And spirit-led unity
Their trust became seeds
With which all furrows were sown
In prevision of harvest

History is an amazing place to visit to learn and understand how it was before we came along. Generations who were spiritual strong and stood up for what they believed. Well said...

a fine tribute to the scandanavian wayfarers of old, the boundless determination of the human spirit, that voice which quests for truth, knowing inside that the earth is not flat.

A beautifully written noble tribute to adventurers,
seekers and finders, hunters and planters,
men and women of good intentions.

Brilliant style, not to mention wonderful line of thought so rich in meaning!

You had me by the first verse, Richard. In it, you really capture that adventure-seeking side of us that seeks to have experiences beyond our parents; a moment for our own individuality to grow and shine. I think that feeling becomes more soul-driven as time passes. But really your poem is a journey and it continues...the struggle, the lessons. We are ill-prepared at best:) Great sense of hope at the end of this, too, like one leaving behind a legacy. Much enjoyed, my friend. Love and hugs,
