Honor steadfast
Absolute stillness
All is preparation
For every battle

Curved sword
Waiting patient
Eyeing the horizon
For the slightest

Perfected training
Excoriated soul
Awaiting the moment
To strike
Or to bow

On the greyest morning
Wakes to a new day
Where death may be met
As an expected guest or friend
Or eluded yet again
Either way only
With a knowing
Patient smile
