Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Spark

Summer Sparks

A crackle in the stillness
Of a hot humid night
That spark of beauty
Illuminating the darkness
A billion grains of sand
Against a billion stars
Spellbinding in its power
Both creator and executioner
A not so quiet reminder
That the universe is bigger
Than even sentient beings can grasp
And any sense of control
Is but an illusion

Indelible
Lines intersecting
Form and function
Tell a personal story

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

Moment

A moment in time
When thoughts cross the astral plane
Of the imagination

For Stephen

Starlight

Breathe in the night sky
Trees bedecked with starlight jewels
My heart feels  closer to you
