Enemy at the Gates

sent to the slaughter
caught between levels of hell...
neither one he chose

he lay amidst death
destiny arrived on time
alive…it chose him

    Congrats Annalise on your win with this suspenseful write :D-- Even if I hadn't seen the movie, i could imagine this, and it's really great how this had such a hopeful end.

    I have never seen this movie. I believe your two senryu entries have described it well.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my recent poem. Bards for millenia have personified 'death' and 'destiny'. You have aptly followed their lead. A thought-provoking battle scene.

    Dear Sara, it's about WWII..when Russia was defending herself against Hitler's invasion-officers knew they couldn't hold positions but would send in the young "untrained" recruits to be killed and if they refused they were shot instantly.this one recruit (Jude Law) played dead, lying amongst the dead waiting to escape. Finally a brave Russian..not a soldier, managed to sneak in at which time, they both discovered each other, and so began the young recruit's road to glory..he became a famous sharp shooter known nationwide for killing hundreds of nazi officers. It's an old movie- 2009, I think
