man’s sharp blade, weapon
of war, is turned to beauty
and his art unfolds
like gossamer threads
family lines are displayed
blank sheet reveals all
Phew! I was worried that TJ had met an unfortunate event – and in a way he had, with the computer gremlins temporarily winning their war on human technological connectivity – otherwise known as computer problems.
Thankfully, he is back with another delicious haiku prompt and some education on Mon Kiri, the art of Japanese paper folding and cutting, and the display of family crests (Mon) on tradition male kimono.
As is usual, I have written two haiku – one never seems quite enough! I hope you enjoy them and please, do pop over to the lovely TJ’s blog to enjoy more!
