A Tribute Piece

 

Land of the rising sun/ There will be tomorrows/ Your fallen souls/ Translucent pearls on the right arm of buddha/Deem it Shinto/ Deem it Shinto/Call it Ascension/Ripples/It is here, yes here we felt you bleed/ We heard your release/ More than a stone’s throw/ The water bore our reflections too./ You were proud/ They said you were warriors/ That your people were samurai/and the world felt shamed by your silent grace because there is something to be said for dignity.
