Haikusday - Iaido

Mae, draw from seiza
Push forward, cut from jodan
Chiburi, noto

Ushiro conceals
Intentions before turning
Movements mirror mae

Deflecting and reflecting
Momentum of foe

Attacked whilst eating
Strike with tsuka, stab behind
Kill stunned man in front

Describing a line
From left shoulder to right hip
Kesa giri cut

A two handed strike
Driving forward and stabbing
Morote tsuki

An enemy falls
Reflect on that which has passed
Moment of zanshin
