Embarkment (senryu series)
  Here i am today
Surrounding enchanted land.
Slowly I depart.

Tomorrow i am
Controlled, it will become
For this land. Is home.

Taking my life now
Step by step until it grows.
The taste is bitter.

Just for a moment
I wish, I wish. To be home.
For within this time.

My body has grown
To accept the fates of past.
Now i will embark.

(senryu is a haiku that talks about things other then nature its format = 5 syllables 7 syllables 5 syllables using 3 lines. In a series it means there are several "senryu's" connected together in one piece.)
