Clouds

Kaleidoscopic clouds
Change from umbra to blue
My internal storm

For far too long I used the inability to be what I was in my youth as an excuse to not be the best I could be now. I’m not planning on getting back into dance or body building but this extra flab gotta go. I want to feel better in body and spirit so I had a funeral for my youth and am looking forward to the next phase ‘cause I got shit to do.

Focus

In a world gone crazy with hate,
Divisiveness and exclusion
I will fight with laser like focus
Double my efforts to be tolerant,
Patient and compassionate
I will be the model of beauty and light

Rōnin

He swept in on a twilight wave
This warrior of suffering
Fighting the dark for the light
A slow steady Seppuku
The result of years past

Wit and wile his Daishō
To excise the black shame
Of being Masterless
His ink a testament to battle
Against the establishment

His ink a roadmap
To his gentle soul
That golden treasure
Rarely revealed
But to a few rare birds
