I wrote this for my father who used to watch Lone and Wolf and Cub with me. My father has always had an interest in Eastern Asian cultures. My father is a black belt in several forms of martial arts; Kung foo, Judo, Jiu Jitzu, Thai Kickboxing, as well as the Chinese sport: Wu-sho The poem is in the form of the Japanese style; Haiku-Tonka

Ronin's daughter

His quest is her own
She chose the sword not the ball
To follow him on

By fires they sit
He laments to her legends
Forgotten by man
Fascinated she listens
The flames dancing in his eyes
Her Ronin Father

Over snowy peaks
Through forests of greenest jade
They wander alone

Beneath blossom trees
They sleep to the sound of reeds
Her sweet dozing face
Fills him with joy and with grief
Some day the winds will part them
Like leaves of Autumn

A Ronin's journey
Is too much a fate for her
And ice cold like snow

Her father's embrace
A man like water and earth
Deepest meaning, noble worth
Tear stricken she bows
The Ronin leaves on
