The Queen of Swords

Is the One to make peace.

As she knows what war is.

She remembers the acute pain of cutting

somebody’s arm, leg, or soul.

She has been wounded, also.

You admire the beauty of her white bride-dress,

but you do not see the scars

hidden behind that attractive veil.

So, the blood spilt on the altar of shrinking-dreams

taught her to respect


She is brave, and she does not waver

when she must go to the battle-field.

But, still, she prefers the dandelions,

raising themselves to the sky

in a wind-blow of desires and hopes.

-The Queen of Swords is

the sacrificial lamb.

The bread that is being broken

for all the hungry beings

in the universe.

Love her, worship her, protect her!
