We are Samurai ……


Returning to the same place,

hands across an ocean. Eyes across a sky

so wide galaxies hide there.


We are Samurai.


You linger on the edge of nowhere

hungry for something, I have no mouth

to feed you.


Returning to the same place

we miss each other, we pass

so close we can almost touch.


Forgetting for minutes:

the Gods laugh at us.


Here, kites fly in an unfeeling sky

and a starving people leave

flowers on my doorstep.


Frangipani, pale linen gilded

purple with the sweet smell

of love.


What use are Samurai in heaven?
