Nice poem Philip.

Oh, so your telling me the mist lifts in Ireland upon occasion!

And I thought the rumors where true...

the speaker in your poem could be one of the heroes from the cycles - Cu Chulainn as his battle madness leaves him for instance.

Hum.. maybe you were imagining in Nipponese terms - though I'd say Cu Chulain qualifies as a Bujin. What ryu teaches the salmon's leap?

with the flash of a sword
are two made from one
Separation
an Abyss between Saturn and the Sun

the sword of discernment
has created a thought
wherein logic and reason
bring true genius to naught

what can be done now
to mend this divide
which the blade has created
in one's own inside

a true sword can heal
just as well as it kills
when used as a servant
of the swordmaster's Will

it bridges the chasm
it has slashed in the sky
then the swordmaster crosses
the path of "gem-in-I"

through the path of the sword
are the two re-made one
Reconciliation
of subject and object is done
