Children of the Divine Wind

Many times the ocean has saved Nippon, pearl of the sea, an oceanic symbiosis a speck in a fecund see. The dikes of man such miniscule plans to hold back the tide. The throngs, each and all crawl across the thin skin of volcanic soil or rise with in the hump-backed alps of remnant cones. Yet, the sea rises to reclaim its own scour the pallet of man, refine, burnish melt, reform. With pen and sword kanji drawn, samurai born with knife and bone entrails torn, honor tested tested by the hand of He, tested and found worthy. The children of the Divine Wind rise above the tsunami, as one, unbowed.

    I do not think there is a single thing wrong with the muse of one who wrote another stunning divine as the wind, are one of few, who finds the unusual, and creates a poem. :)

    I agree with Chris, Deb. You've created a gem here. Just love the title and the images as well. Love, Carolyn

    Ok Debbie, I know people say this about other people's poems, but you truly won your own contest with this poem. I especially like, "With pen and sword kanji drawn, samurai born with knife and bone entrails torn, honor tested...." Great reflections on the Japanese throughout time.

    As the protector has turned on its once protected, this poem's content shines!! You have captured the history and awe of the culture of a once great nation, Debbi. I am stealing your poem and hiding it in my favorites. :) This is so well-crafted! Gwendolen
