and now
as i ready myself
to face my death
my enemy stands
ready
and perfect


thoughts
since childhood
in preparation
for this moment
a sword
hanging
above my head
a lullaby


suckled
on mortality
and weaned
to be a vengeful
ghost


cold lightning
drawn
from the storm
on my hip
i ride the wind
onto the field
the name of my master
my only prayer


cherry blossoms
raining down
to wash away
my fear


and though
we both die
today
i find perfection
in my enemy
our mingled blood
making us
brothers


all life
a dream
this end
the only
reality

I especially like this stanza:
and though
we both die
today
i find perfection
in my enemy
our mingled blood
making us
brothers

Well done!

And here I stand-in the echo of this incredible poem-the sword of your words shine brilliant. Brilliant!

Alexandre,

Thought provoking and beautifully penned, this leaves me wondering, is the enemy...I?

Love your strong, vivid imagery. "Cold lightning/drawn/from the storm/on my hip" is particurly effective

WELL DONE!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
