I Must Go to the Away

I must go to the away

To unseen shores

To Mists of fields

Yet unseen

They call to me

These foreign mountains

These yet untasted foods

The aromas beckon to me

And I follow

To drink in their sweetness

Absorb their colors

Swell in their differentness

And make it mine

To learn of their language 

And to see their beauty

That surrounds them

Yet but to them is home

Is everyday

Is normal

I must go away

So that in my awayness 

My wanderings

I can at last come home.
