Day 260 of 366

Shuriken.

 

As usual, when I need weaponry, I turn to my son. Shuriken are my favorite ninja weapon. Sadly, as he was pulling them off the wall where they were displayed he dropped one behind a large and very heavy bookcase.

 

BTW, the characters on the blades are, clockwise from the top: silver ball, red dragon, gold sky, blue cloud. It just struck me; you can read Japanese either right to left or left to right, so the characters could also be silver cloud, blue sky, gold dragon and red ball. Actually, makes more sense that way, but not as poetic.
