Treading lightly the path to enlightenment.

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,
camouflaged.

Hidden.

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.

Slainte,

Paz

  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!
