Hiaku The Star - Poem by John Winter

Elliptical thoughts
Cloud the recesses within
A new star is born

An evolving light
Encompasses the weakness
It becomes a solace

The light becomes strong
A sunburst glows on his face
Recession is his

No consultation
The knife is drawn and finds home
Life essence drains out

The shards of despair
Float freely amongst the light
The truth becomes clear

The star becomes dull
It is a dead entity
Forever in darkness
