On the Way Home 2

soul takes flight
change in existence
bleeding heart

unknown soldier’s grave
all his tomorrows
now eternal flame

Inspired by:

“…The chronicle of the shrine gave a vivid account of how, upon the heroic death of Lord Sanemori, Kiso no Yoshinaka had sent his important retainer Higuchi no Jiro to the shrine to dedicate the helmet with a letter of prayer…”

how pitiful
under the armored helmet
a cricket
