The Veil of Usurai (Thin Ice): Carpe Diem #137

Blades scrape icy edge,

cutting like Samurai knives.

Usurai sustains.

Its cover comforts – 

encapsulates my facade.

Too much pain to crack.

Carpe Diem’s haiku challenges this month explore classical Japanese kigo (seasonwords). Today’s was: Usurai, the type of thin ice still lingering as Spring’s warmth tries to break through. I decided to internalize this concept to an inner conflict.
