A shade is covering the sunlight.

The darkest clouds have gathered.

Wind screaming wild towards us.

The rain is near,I can smell the thunder closing in.

A distant voice echoes in the forest.

All its creatures now,alarmed and frightened.

The voice reaches my sight as the rain comes heavily down.

"Spirit of the Ages,Soulmate of Eternity-

which Goddess brings you to this Earth?"

and as i stand here begging for an answer

a long,quite stream appears before me.

I follow the stream,all mesmerised and charmed.

Into the forest I walk

under the trees and in through the storm

following the waters unknown.

I walk for days and nights with fear but no fright

and when the last drop is drained of this heavy rain

I reach the end of the line.

There I stand on the edge of the world,

at last my journey has stopped.

As the clouds fade after this epic rain I watch the rainbow rising from the East.

"What's for all this then?"

"What's to come out of my quest?"

I'm wondering again but this time something makes my wonder in vain.

I don't need to search,I don't need to find

for this trip has been the greatest question to ask.

No need to end,the end has no meaning,

to begin is the essence of all.
