Tales Of Ten Men

The Warrior’s Tale

A ninja, I moved
stealthily through my world.
sometimes in fluid and undetectable ways,
sometimes stock still,


Now the
rhetoric of the politic
has passed.

Here the
clear campaign
rises before me,
and I don armor.

Shield raised and sword held high,
I am samurai.

  1. I love this! I am at a point in my life where I feel it is time to move forward, time for action. With “shield raised and sword held high,” I am ready.

    • Thank you for your comment, Madeline.
      Indeed, the metaphor and symbolism of the piece describes exactly such a time in a life.
      I, too, am ready!
