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

41CD56A5-D210-4B41-87C6-67AD88702834

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

Glass

This year I resolve to shatter
That glass ceiling that is my mind
For beautiful as the glass is
The atmosphere weighs heavily
And is but a sparkly, fragile illusion
Better to let the sharp fragments
Rain their color down upon me
Than to stay below the surface
Wanting to be flying above
