Orchid from Battlefield

War fire flames pain
Every attack seems in vane 
A soldier fights through the pain
Before he will go insane

He kills his enemy with his last breath
Before he himself welcomes death
One of the soldiers crashes through enemy ranks
But ahead of him is battalion of tanks

After colossal battle air is dense
The losses on both sides immense
The survives on the battlefield smell lead
Many are wounded many are dead

The dense mist covers the air
Last rations of food survivors will share
The powder smoke is in part reason for the mist
Warrior comes through the battlefield clinching his fist

The reason for the fight was political
The war was now cyclical 
Some hated the other side
But many did not wish the armies to collide

They had to fight
Soon long day will turn to night
Sunset is beautiful but red like blood
And this fight shore cost a lot of blood

Warrior thinks of his lady back at home
She is now all alone
He has a break to visit her
For luck she gave him strand of her hair

What should he give her when her he’ll see?
What in this hell could be worth her beauty
He searches through the mist next morning filled with dew
Red fire blazing grass gives him a clue

Against still dark fire is eerie beautiful red
Not so beautiful but equally eerie is blood of the dead
But away from the flames in the morning fog
There is wild orchid towering above old log

The air around it is very dense
But the smell is different it awakens spirit sense
It’s not smell of powder or lead
For a brief second warrior forgets ordeal he just had

He picks up the flower from the center of battlefield
At that moment with new hope his heart is filled
Next day his lady he will see
As he gives her the orchid for a second he feels free

The orchid may fade but its soul will never die
Just like love soldier and his lady written in the sky
Beyond non linear equations there is universal balance
Beyond that divine counterbalance

The written law of that starts with physics and soul
Grows beyond all control
But one thing it will not grow beyond and that is the key
It is idea of destiny

But orchid seems to grow beyond destiny
And in that lies its beauty
Its mesmerizing majesty
And holding it for brief time every soldier and their family felt free
