The Arrow

the twing
the twang
the flick
the swish
of the bow
the arrow
does not fly
straight and true
like a fish
it swims gracefully
through the ocean
of air and life
of breath and fire
the fish swim
with no direction
yet the arrow
finds its mark
hits hard and deep
powerful yet discreet
the heart
the soul
the spirit
straight and true.

    Wow, I’m first. I find it odd. Or perhaps it’s because I’m checking so early in the morning. Haha

    If you read it again, and take it a little literally while keeping Heavenly Sword in mind… it sounds like you’re describing the archery parts of the game. πŸ˜€

    On a more serious note, I like it. As I like all your written stuff. But you’ll have to explain it to me when we see each other tomorrow, okay?

    God bless today. πŸ™‚

        Haha I couldn’t go to sleep then. Nasa school na ko when I was replying. Nakatambay sa caf, you know, wi-fi wi-fi lang. Hahaha The perks of being in a rich school.

        Yaan mo, konti na lang sembreak na! Kaso di tayo sabay ng sembreak! Mag-o-overlap lang ng konti. πŸ˜›

        Panong experiment? And of course I like it. Must you doubt my undying support?! Haha
