Sun Over War
by Daniel Penney
sets over the fierce battle,
not paying mind to the praying of warriors
fallen below on the scorched soil,
which went from calm, sunny meadow
to fierce, bloody battle.
Unique, beautiful flowers
crunched to dust by retreating soldiers' boots,
and the never-ending hail fire of artillery
creating this wretched place.
The soldiers curse,
some weep for longing of their loved ones.
But some are driven by fiery anger,
wishing not to mourn friends and family alike,
but to avenge them.
Both the mourners and avengers wish for this conflict to end,
as the sun watches over.
