Samurai

Spread the love

Hall_of_Lanterns_by_snapsnapbang

Not long before he’s caught;
Felt a presence chasing him;
A glimpse before he got;
Alas! the lights went dim.

Taken refuge into a shade,
Gathering breath as he goes;
A sudden duel struck in glade,
Further still, a teardrop flows.

Ashamed for how she fell for lies
Alas! amid a grave of stone,
As love and hope within her dies;
Whispered prayer in muffled tone.

Moonlight creeping over the lawn.
Weeping till the night had gone.

  1. Hello, its a beautiful poem and well written too, although sad and filled with pain and hints of regret, and maybe longing. A silent cry for love to linger…

  4. __Grand and beautiful verse, Sunny! To use some of your words in this haiku echo, the key… is the spelling of morning’s dew :

    moonlight seeps
    beyond this tearful lawn
    mourning’s dew
