Thank you for this great background about Onna-bugeisha, I had never heard from the "female samourai". You have honored them with your haiku in a very strong and loving way.
Unexpectedly dramatical turn, yet beautiful and fragile. You really have managed to create a story in just three lines.
Thank you for honoring these women.Spring Kimono
must have been hard to do, fight in a kimono.
Oh this is a great tribute.. but there have always been women in war..
Don't be shy, you know what I want!
