Beautiful Blade

Form: Free Verse

His hands
calloused by time
working in forging heat
sparks as he pounds red glowing metal
steam rising from the water
and back into the flames
massive powerful hands
working steel into submission
as it yields to his craftsmanship
a blade born of artistry
to wielded in battle
a warrior’s weapon
to kill and maim
an instrument to bring death
magnificent in its beauty
and yet
the pen is more mighty#
