A belief breaks trust when the accuser accuses.

A misunderstanding of misinformation,

A darkened doorway where once there was light.

The piercing rapier,

The targeted flesh,

Unfathomable plunge into righteous indignity

And the rage is exhumed.

A formidable thrust that enters without conscience,

To fulfill the rush that justice be done,

Shattered faith and scattered hope .


Misinformation obliterated a treasured trove,

In a tale of Roshomon.

  1. Great post, Ellyn! I saw the film Roshomon months ago, and the subject matter is timeless. It’s definitely a great Kurosawa film!
