somewhere between shadows

strange, how the calm
washes over the weary soul
of the simple foot soldier
lying sore and wounded
from bloody battles
with fellow friends
in their noble pursuit
of power, lust and gold
for the nation’s thirst
strange, how the calm
settles in and descends
like night’s curtain
after the last curtain call
when all is lost
and your life’s blood
flows out warm into your palms
strange, how the calm
removes the lines of worry
and agony from the pale faces
of the traveling spirits
that move from one
life to the next
searching for answers
returning the echoes
locked within their dark hearts
strange, how the calm
is released from a
moist and misty morn
filled with flowers’ captured dew
smelling sweet and cool
regardless of preceding storm
that tousled their limbs
and tested their strength
strange, how the calm,
strange.
