The Voyager Returns


The beach palm, morning glory,
Seagulls and sandpipers,
Welcome the voyager home.

On a visit to the Indonesian Island of Lombok, I sat on the beach with an elderly fisherman talking wistfully about his son who went away and has yet to come back. All along , the beach was lined by clumps of pandanus palms while morning glory creepers covered the sand. Sandpiper birds ran at the water’s edge while gulls were in flight. Its a scene that would not be forgotten.
