Across the interstate

Across the interstate

The lights of dusk his thoughts and stare confront
alone the winds, inside his soul engage
while his departure's shedding reds assuage
extending contributions to beyond.

How wrongly pride and virtues just subdue
while cymbals drum paeans on cloudy skies
the fencing emptiness his past denies
- he wished the warfare kills to be untrue.

Concealed the day, a darkened fate embeds
with his division's ranking and three stars
his shoulders' silver and tangential paths
- forever faithful slug, attacking weds.

The shot approximates and blossomed bleeds, 
to love him in his chosen Astral Halls, 
his homeland and the springtime blooms recalls, 
that congregate to stem his manly deeds; 

Among the darkened woods the spirits breathe
could be a rustle of his killed comrades, 
expatriated lives, outside of Hades, 
their end was meritorious, forthwith.

His soul transformed to sentry guard and link
upon the mountain, laurel to bestow,
the killed in action brave became a crow
and sunk the stars behind the shadows blink.

The message passed across the interstate, 
infinity became a friend and bride,
his three reflecting silvers coincide
as dew drops drop upon his inter slate.

    I can see the stains of sweat on this fine piece of silk. If you haven't done so already have you ever considered writing a modern play in this form.

    I like the classic feel of this piece, it could have been written by one of the old masters.

    Absorbing philosophical expressions. Giorgio. I tried two sonnets with iamb. I don't know how far I am correct.

    A tremendous philosophy chosen with a style that is beyond me (Iambic Pentameter). I like the way you went about a soldier. (I think if I interpreted right)
