Behind The Shadows.

Behind The Shadows.

It’s returning like gush

 

on your young memories;

 

hearts that kept me

 

for tomorrow yesterday.

 

Shadows cannot be

 

forgotten in a twilight walk.

 

Yes,

 

no fruit riped,

 

and you made me lessons

 

compared in a

 

boat with the fig tree.

 

 

I have become what

 

your heart cannot carry;

 

fell down too much

 

to stand too strong!

 

Why are you paniced?

 

 

 

Life cannot write

 

the worse and face

 

me back-world

 

till eternity long.

 

Yes,

 

you could not

 

see me in the shadows,

 

but I have found

 

the home in the

 

dark shadowed- cave.

 

 

 

That is why you

 

could not admit my scepter!

 

We have grown

 

strong in the dark,

 

and mastered

 

the labyrinths;

 

it’s true you

 

can’t see me soon,

 

but kings will

 

keep my face

 

to your wander;

 

and me,

 

still moving away

 

from your look

 

behind the

 

curtains of the shadow.

SAMURAI.

 

 

I will not shake

 

the foundations that

 

give life to the Haiku;

 

verses that saved lives

 

on stone and book.

 

 

Strength made

 

Japan JAPAN, and

 

carved-men on

 

book makes

 

me sweet devotion.

 

 

Samurai flashed before

 

me, plenty of the world

 

a man should carry,

 

and to ever free the

 

gates of the conscience,

 

and to unfree the

 

key that imprison the skin.

 

 

What Legends are these?

 

How come the powers

 

to silent devotions.

 

Frailty made man

 

skilled in works

 

of perfection; To

 

man is this frailty made

 

him he must cry, but

 

strong be his weight

 

of the world learn he

 

to carry!

 

 

Much, I hear the

 

whispers from the

 

poem in the wind;

 

from the Legends it says:

 

give blood-devotion to

 

the God you believe,

 

who found you

 

dreams when on the

 

thread!
