Day of Reckoning

Above bleak pastures, A cobalt coliseum: Warriors are unleashed. · Aggressive brave clouds, Battle for the dominance: Vanquishment is vague. · Conquest of power, Clash of divine elements: Battle in the sky. · Sun and clouds collide, On a battlefield landscape: The land prays for reign. · The golden swords pierce, As injured clouds hemorrhage: Pelting the pastures. · With sharp swords of light. The golden gladiator: Obtains victory.

    Also, after I submitted, I saw peoples' submissions into your contest, and each one looked like it could be the winner; I was amazed. I wouldn't have wanted to pick a winner.

    Raul, thank you for kindly giving me a spot in your contest with my amateur write. Your piece here far exceeds that particular write of mine. You have perfectly fused the 'outer' message with the inner-allegorical message. This an example of Haiku in it's purest form, no need to hide behind abstracts in this piece. Excellent.

    Oh Raul!! Wow...I think this is another of the best of yours!! I can see this battle in our skies...we sit high on a hill side, and when the storms brew, it is just like you describe from our front windows. What a terrific poem/choka...this should be submitted for the Poetry Soup contest...could be a big win!!!
