Soné Taizo


Thick reddish ember--

Even as memory

mixes your character

You in whom

They resurrected budo--

samurai's image

but in your hand

Bible for blade

Twenty years inactive

soles grown soft

but tatami burned

your spirit

and your mirthful

glance also steel

Now they tell me

your warm umber

is gray and ash--

the whole bed

of this old old passion

dies dimmer still
