Spirits of Fallen Soldiers

angels descended
on a bloody battlefield…
     soldiers’ spirits rise

Heaven’s door opens
Freedom fighters’ souls enter
Forgiveness is found
“Thou Shalt Not Kill” set aside
By a righteous Creator

(Senryu and Tanka)

*By Carolyn Devonshire for Russell’s “A Mesh of Forms” contest
