An old soldier is homesick for his homeland, so different from the beautiful Rainbow Rainforest where he's living now.

This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

Everything's bright and beautiful here:
Snakes in all the colors of the rainbow,
And songbirds singing with endless good cheer.
But I miss hearing the plain gray sparrow.

Author's Notes

This is the first appearance of a character I first imagined during one of my/Rai Kunabei's card draws. It came together during the July 2011 Muse Fusion with MG's question about how one would avoid an active border in a sailing ship. Boy, I thought--that would be handy! However, none of our major seafaring cultures has such an early warning system. But maybe, just maybe, my poor old lost soldier would have--or would have had--one. MG--you ask good questions!
