The Alchemist (tanka)

by Larry Chamberlin   Apr 8, 2019

The boy traveled far
hearing the Soul of the World
crossed scorching desert
to return to his treasure
captured the heart that loved him.

    Ah! Funny enough, currently this book is sitting in the passenger side of my car. I've been meaning to read other works by Paulo besides "Veronika Decides to Die" but haven't gotten to it yet.

    Just from reading this, and others who have been inspired by Paulo's work, I'm excited to read it!
