by Gabriel Morningstar
Age Group: Adult
To know the sword as a single
Point of light
Honed to perfection
To pierce the mind and thus
Pierce the soul
To see the void
As the bridge to salvation
In the parlour ten mats wide
And ten mats square
As a thousand cranes
Fly by the window
Author's Notes: I group these two together because they are both inspired by a combination of Buddhist Koan and post-WWII Japanese novelists. The first is inspired by my favourite short story by Yukio Mishima, entitled "Sword." The second was inspired by Yasunari Kawabata's novel "A Thousand Cranes."
Author's Location: West Chester, Pennsylvania
