Dreams of the Fallen
Fragments of memories
flash through the
dark silvery mist,
images manifest randomly,
love injected with pain,
war implanted with fear.
A scene flares into brilliance,
two skyclad mortals
entwined upon a bed,
breathing in the scent
of lavender and sweat,
whispering immortal words
of eternal love.
Reflections of memories
silently scream into existance,
dipicting graphic details
of panic, pain, and strife,
creating a panorama
of a dark beauty
so exquisitely breathtaking,
it pulls us into
the Dreams of the Fallen
Author's Notes:
Was looking at pictures emailed with a story of a friends grandfather who served in World War II.
Was also listening to a song called "Green Fields of France" by Dropkick Murphys

A moving tableau of images depicting life in turmoil -- another solid and entertaining piece of prose which held me from start to finish.  Enjoyed it very much

Terrific A-B-A form -- the middle (B) serves as a release from the tension of the two 'A' sections on the extremes.  [This kind of analysis comes from studying 'form' in music.]  A very dramatic piece.  Brilliant.  --D
