Haiku I- The Samurai


Wielding his blood sword,
A hero who fights with pride,
And slays with honor.

He is a brave soul,
Drawing blood only for peace,
Never for vengeance.

Even if he falls,
In the midst of a battle,
His name will stay on.

    The form is very attractive, as for the content, peace stays back when there is conflict. (Report) Reply

    Short. Powerful. Rich. Amazing. Beautiful. All the words that describe your haiku.

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
