Amaze the sage

Here's my submission for this week's Inspiration Avenue prompt:
"Once upon a time..."

one-line pen & ink drawing w/Inktense pencils

Once upon a time
I drew a bit of line—

Suddenly on the page
Appeared a wizened sage

His name was Amaze
And I asked of his days

Wandering the shores of Lore.

He told me to sit
And listen for a bit

Then he made me cherry tea
Said, “It’ll help you see.”

But then my ink ran dry
Was that a tear in his eye?

I wonder what the wizard would have said…

What do you think; what would the wizard have said?
