the sword of conflict
raises swifter
resounds louder
than the voice
of reason

being

it is a rise and fall
from naught to naught
which for the blessed
will go with light
and return with love

祈り

as sea waters recede
tears of Nippon
freely flow

may the brave heart
of a rising sun
dry them both

from waking to sleeping
from spring to winter
from cradle to grave

searching for the secret

succulent

1 Mar

smeared thick on my lips
rolled ‘round on my tongue
dripping from my fingers
slathered bar-b-que

a squeeze to cut the residue

pounding on the gate of discovery
not to be let in
but to break through

legend

27 Dec

in the waning of the 13th moon
rises the empowered soul
the alpha child of truth
birthed in possibility

spark of the embarking flame
which will be struck
at the darkest hour
to light the new beginning

regret

26 Dec

one cannot unstrike a blow
one cannot untell a lie
one cannot undo a wrong
one cannot unbreak a heart

the gift

25 Dec

wonder breaks with the dawn
peace befalls the troubled
empty hearts grow hopeful
for a moment
magic happens
