April 7, 2016: New World Traveler.

To begin my quest, I must
first rest my thoughts,
gather my bearings. 
Travelling for an elder
is not what it once was.

I sought life
with mine eyes. 

Dust follows me
from desert to cratered lakes. 
I heed warnings from outsiders
who dare confront my life's mission.
I live for the thirst
that comes with exploring new worlds.
