Hara Kiri: A letter

This summer breeze
upon my menacing blade,
no kaishakunin, only emptiness,
empty mindedness,
unafraid

The Hokkaido seas
restless like a school child,
stir within my cup of tea
empty mindedness,
beguiled

Mountains of Sakura
fill me, nor here nor there,
a million of my memories
empty mindedness,
despair

Bushido, my creed
is like the lotus in bloom,
Nihon hear my cries!
empty mindedness,
doom

My beloved wife
wear your gossamer gown
like the moon wears the night
empty mindedness,
facedown

My prodigious son
sheath your political sword,
this is an age of declaration 
empty mindedness,
soared

Sincerely, truly yours,
the masks I leave behind
are desires now outlived,
empty mindedness,
blind

The final scene
my rising sun, peaceful sky,
and with the absolutely true
empty mindedness,
I die.
