POEM ” A CROW AMONG THE BUTTERFLIES ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 1 person, night and text

He was taken from us much too soon
from panther black to heavens room
with anger wings in feather bloom
a crow to soar the sky
a dark of knight and soul it be
to take to light in memory
who shares the heart of Brandon Lee
through a pierced and steady eye
for love that beckons those undone
to chase a dream so wild to run
and from the father to the son
to share that legacy
a man machine from fists to feet
so quick of wit to spin the heat
with every shot that spells defeat
in pain and misery
and in the face of certain death
to find the will to catch your breath
with something more and nothing left
in honor and good faith
to bow with grace and in that space
to find the mind a sacred place
with no concern upon the face
a man of mental state
that knows no fear and in the game
shall persevere and burn the flame
for those to follow in the chain
to steal the holy crown
the pride of joy of Karategi
in black of belt I wrap of thee
from ancient times in history
dark angel looking down…
